Vans Workwear “Mt. Vernon” Pack

Titled the “Mt. Vernon” collection, the pack features the Sk8-Hi, Era, and Slip-On, all reconstructed using hickory striped denim reminiscent of the uniforms found on railroad or car shop workers. Staying true to its origin, the Sk8-Hi takes the vintage textile and pairs it with solid navy panels, along with a leather Jazz Stripe extending down its lateral. The Era and Slip-On both take a similar approach, with a darker shade of denim occupying the front of the shoe over the toe, whilst the latter half comes dressed in a more distressed, lighter shade, all the while retaining the contrasting white striped pattern. All three silhouettes come ready with a clean white sole, with the Sk8-Hi and Era models being paired with equally fresh white laces. For those interested, the Vans “Mt. Vernon” triple pack is now available at select Vans retailers, with prices starting at $70 USD for the Slip-Ons and the Era, and $80 USD for the Sk8-Hi.
