One of the most enticing elements of Vans' output is how consistently affordable their retro styles are.

That doesn't mean that they can't get fancy with it though. Turning the luxury look all the way up is their Diemme team up, which introduces premium Horween leathers to heritage silhouettes like the Vans Sk8-Hi and the Vans Era. The Eras from the group will run you $300 while the Sk8-His are $350. They'll be available beginning in November at stockists like Vans DQM General, Bodega, Bows & Arrows, Conveyor at Fred Segal, Hot Rod, Nice Kicks, Odin New York, Proper, Sole Classics, St. Alfred and The Darkside Initiative. Cop or not?
