Gosha Rubchinskiy x Vans Authentic

An appreciative take on a classic Vans silhouette, Gosha Rubchinskiy does his thing with the Vans authentic, continuing the Russian streetwear designer's collaborative relations with the Cali skate brand.

A consistent black midsole across all four colourways turns a very clean, subtle and classic shoe into something that feels much more harsh, abrasive and, well, Gosha. White, black, pink and blue are on offer, with Gosha branding across the heel setting this apart from your average Authentic.

This isn't just about choosing a few interesting colours and sticking a logo somewhere to cash in on an easy collab, this is Gosha paying homage and appreciating a very classic shoe in a simple but bold and distinctive way, something consistent with the rest of his almost anarchic output to date.

Available (for now, at least) at Dover Street Market.
