Garmentry: Vans Distressed

We at Only Bespoke love Vans as much as the next person, but these sleek, simple, stylish trainers may be taking a turn for the worse. Are these humble trainers having a make-up or make-down?

What Vans have done to their authentic trainer is given it the 'Distressed look', now we are unsure on how this will appeal to the public, but what we do know is that the price of them is approx £54 pound. Now in comparison to a pair of ordinary Authentic's for £35 pound is it really worth it? We feel that there has been a somewhat lack of effort put into the design of these trainers and there originators are bargaining on the fact that the general public are so smitten with these plimsolls at the moment that they will just lap them up anyway.
