Vans Era ‘Warped Check’ – size? Exclusive

by Henrik Buzzi

Teaming up with the Californian skate experts over at Vans, Size? joined forces once more to create a psychedelic-inspired ‘Warped’ iteration of the Era. Channeling the colorful artistic vibes present at the time of Vans’ inception – and their off-limits design choices from ’66 right throughout the ‘70s – we’ve taken the brand’s 1976 Era and applied a psychedelic checked patterning throughout the pair’s multi-colored canvas uppers.

Think Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Beatles and Stones – the vibrant energy of their music flows heavily throughout the Era, whose striking palettes contrast vary shoe to shoe. The left uses a predominantly pink base, with accents of light blue making up the checks, while the right switches things up with blue as the base and pink for the checks. Both of the two boasts a monochrome warped check footbed, with a similar print working its way around the midsole. What’s more, we’ve painted the iconic waffle rubber outsole in a bright yellow hue for added hits of color. The Vans Era ‘Warped Check’ – size? Exclusive will be available via the size? previews app and in size? On June 7.
