Vans_ John Cardiel Pack_SK8Mid & Era.

The John Cardiel’s Pack consists of the Sk8-Mid & Era Pro, the former in brown leather and the latter in a black / brown suede and canvas combination.

The Sk-8 mid with its rough and aged leather is easily the standout piece here. It features corded laces threaded through metal eyelets and oozes ruggedness. Comfort, of course is a given.

The Vans Era is sturdy and a looker in its own right with a gold button sitting pretty close to the tongue. It features similar corded laces. Both designs rest on a white midsole.
