vintage vans style #274 slip-on
2-tone white/navy corduroy
made in usa circa 1979
new (without box)
just when you thought you'd seen it all a long lost style #274 rises to the surface. with subtle details separating it from a standard slip-on style #98, it features a more angular vamp articulation & hidden elastic gusset which stretches from side to side under the tongue flap. interesting to see an off the wall example in deluxe material such as corduroy. not sure how well the butter soft wide wale cord will hold up to flip tricks, nor knee slides on vert? skate at own risk!
