These tweed sneakers from Vans are a perfect addition to both casual, or even slightly more formal fall wardrobes.

The Vans 'Sk8-Hi' high-top sneaker has been made over in a refined tweed material upper that's perfectly suited for cooler weather. Tweed sneakers make perfect sense for fall because the material not only looks great, but also because it's both durable and moisture-resistant in harsher climates.

The dark grey tweed upper is set against a contrasting white side stripe, shoelaces and an outer sole with a re-enforced toecap made to stand up to wear and tear. This particular shoe model is actually just one example of the new rollout of tweed-inspired items for fall from Vans. Several other shoe designs including the low-top 'Era' are also set to receive a tweed makeover as well.
