Vans introduces a new six-piece capsule collection that recreates the Authentic and Old Skool models in updated versions for the holiday season. Focusing on the design elements of the sidewall of the sneakers, Vans' designers take a traditional route on the silhouette while including embossed ridges and studs for an edgy new take on the classics sneaker.

Adding a bulkier outsole to the bottom of the Authentic shoes, the brand also raises the sidewall of the kicks while adding a tonal black colorway to the midsole. The new Authentic Platform 2.0 is available in two all-over suede models including a black to the floor and red/black colorway. The final colorway features a blend of black suede and leopard printed canvas. The companion to the offering comes from the Old Skool, which pays homage to punk styling with tonal embossed studs on the sidewall. The Old Skool is available in three iterations including blanc de blanc, chili pepper and an all-black made of patent leather with a tonal matte leather Sidestripe.

The all new Vans Embossed Sidewall pack retails between $65-$75 and is now available at select Vans retail stores and online at
