Demoted To Third String

The Vans Era is a silhouette that is pretty hard to fuck up in terms of color palette and pattern, even though it seems a ton of designers do just that. Luckily, these new premium suede versions are no such case. Suede low-top sneakers might seem wild senseless with the approach of bricking season, but don't kid yourself like you were actually going to treat your suede shoes properly this time around. Let's be real, you do your best to keep suede joints clean for maybe 11 days before you get caught in the rain or step in some homeless guy's piss or just get general buyer's remorse and decide to demote them to third string.
