New Vans Hemp Rata Vulc

New release from Vans, the Rata Vulc in black or blue hemp, with white vulcanized sole and matching white laces.  The blue has white stitching all around the bottom and top.

While some say that it is a “boat shoe” it reminds me more of a Clark’s Wallabee.  In any event, it is not made using any products (at least the upper, I haven’t verified from Vans whether their non-leather shoes are 100% vegan), and is really clean.  I’m really feeling the black colorway.  Vans continues to impress with their simple yet striking designs.

UPDATE: You can cop a pair of these at Zappos or  Bows and Arrows in Berkeley. I used to live down the street from this store!
