Beauty & Youth has collaborated with Vans to bring you comfortable, luxurious kicks. The Vans Authentic Satin line is a range of four velvety sneakers that will make you feel like you're running on air.

Available in burgundy, navy, grey and black, these Vans Authentic Satin sneakers will be available exclusively at Beauty & Youth stores in Japan starting this fall. Check out the interesting colors of these shoes in the featured gallery.

Implications - Luxury used to be a status symbol that everyone aspired to acquire, while only a handful succeeded. Although that reality is slowly changing, businesses can capitalize on the still prevalent income disparity by branding their products as luxurious and extravagant and targeting more well-off consumers.
