Vans' 'Made For The Makers' collection reworks the iconic sneakers that the brand is recognized for -- such as the 'Old Skools' or the 'Checkerboard Slip-Ons' to be more weather-appropriate. Ringing in the new year, the company crafted these sturdy shoes to better suit the cold, harsh weather that is experienced this time of year. Without compromising the classic looks of the Vans sneakers, the collection features maximized functionality with the help of strategic external materials.

The Made For The Makers series features a more winter-bearable bottom sole for better grip on the slippery ground. The weather-appropriate footwear is also made with tougher material with its 'Vanguard canvas, suede uppers to repel liquids and dirt, contoured drop-in UltraCush sockliners for long-lasting comfort, and padded collars for support and flexibility."
