Desert-Inspired Sneakers (UPDATE)

The Vans OTW Surveyor Pack is Made For Explorers

— January 18, 2013 — Fashion
The newest shoewear collection to come out of shoe brand Vans is the Spring 2013 Surveyor pack, which takes inspiration from the American Southwest.

The influence for the shoe is the Grand Canyon, which is known for its vast dry desert lands. It is apparent from its dominant brown canyon suede color seen throughout the shoe. The collection comes in three varieties: a high top, mid-top and low-top. Each shoe is finished off with a white sole, metal eyelets and tri-color hiking laces. It also comes equipped with Drilex technology to ensure that your feet will be kept dry on rainy days.

With three distinct styles to choose from, the Vans OTW Surveyor Pack sneakers are made for all types of skateboard enthusiasts as well as adventurers who enjoy the style and comfort that Vans are able to provide.
