Vans Old Skool ‘Retro Block’ Review
Description
Whether you’re wearing pants or shorts, the Vans Old Skool ‘Retro Block’ is the absolute versatile piece that completes your getup. Innovating the 1977, “Style 66” silhouette, these kicks are a blast from the past, thanks to the iconic “jazz stripe” which comes in blue and red color block pattern in this latest iteration. True to its skate tradition that keeps reinventing, this pair of Vans, made from quality leather and suede materials, delivers a modern twist to a classic that is easy to style and work with.
