Vans x Beauty & Youth – Authentic “Cord” Pack (Japan only!)

Japanese clothing label Beauty & Youth by United Arrows, has once again teamed up with Vans on another shoe creation.  This time using the Authentic as their base, they chose to construct each one using a plush corduroy material.  Beauty & Youth’s approach to designing Vans, is to keep the appearance subtle, but to use materials that make you wonder why you’ve never seen those at your local Vans store.  Available in 3 colorways: Black, Brown, and Burgundy, which at first, look like the colors from any regular Vans Fall/Winter release.  The Burgundy pair comes with a gum sole, while the other two come with a classic white sole.  Available soon, but expect these to be exclusive to Japanese Beauty & Youth retailers.
