was not sure what I had with a $5 ebay risk but I knew it was gold! what was this old skool-like jazz striped full suede low cut van with otw tongue & toe/heel bumpers? upon arrival it was confirmed as an og #AVnative!! #vanengelen & #vandoren would be proud
we dont pay a huge amount of attention to modern release although im starting to think maybe we should. 1st encountering the AV native via the spitfire edition of course it's more a reference to madrid flys than a native american, with the spitfire logo replacing the fly print & the same triangular tongue graphic. finding the original however the AV is more an old skool without the toe box & with native's ollie pad silhouette only.
vintage vans style #_ av native
