Inspired by Vans’ classic runner style and a hard-edged punk ethos, the Barneys men’s team helped design a black leather sneaker complete with studs and spikes. The exclusive style is constructed of luxury materials, with attention to every detail, even going so far as adding leather laces. Stud and spike design nuances are also a nod to the DIY aspect of punk culture, which embraces self expression and customization.
“We were excited to put our spin on Vans’ recently re-released runner, as the Vans brand has long been synonymous with skate and punk culture. In the spirit of that style, the sneakers have details similar to those found on a leather moto jacket.”
– Andrew Orner (Barneys Men’s Shoe Buyer)
