Vans – Style #44 (Authentic) “X-mas Tree Print” Made in U.S.A. (vintage!)

Merry Christmas everybody.  For this Christmas, we have a special shoe we want to share with you all, from our friends in the UK, over at The Other Side of the Pillow.  They specialize in vintage, hard to find items, and one of their specialties are old school “made in the U.S.A.” Vans.  It’s been awhile since I’ve been in touch with them, but they always have interesting stuff, and they are truly knowledgeable in vintage Vans.  I learn lots of new things about Vans from these guys!  Well, they’ve recently shared these Christmas themed Authentics, or aka the Style #44 as they were called back in the day.  Adorned in a red and white plaid pattern, with little green Christmas trees all over, and finished off with pine green foxing stripes.  Check out the “made in U.S.A.” heel tabs as well.  If you come across any Vans with these tabs on the heel at swap meets or thrift stores, then pick them up!  They’re becoming more and more harder to find, and can fetch above $100 depending on condition.  Enjoy!
