There’s no question that Commonwealth has been gaining major traction on all fronts over the past year. Apart from their consistent drops and features of exclusive collections, the Adidas Consortium collaboration is the truest testament to these big strides. Well, our trusted streetwear lifestyle store has a follow-up banger for us with their latest joint effort with Vans Vault, as well as a deep, loaded lineup of brands for their spring/summer ‘19 collection.
Vans Vault and Commonwealth took two classic silhouettes in the OG Era and OG Classic Slip-On, and gave it a sleek, dressed-up look that wouldn’t look amiss on either a tropical fit, or a casual work suit. The Era was run in a refreshing “Desert Sage,” which is an all-tonal minty green with “Every Generation Needs A New Revolution” embossed on the midsole. Meanwhile, the Classic Slip-On comes close to familiar wheat or Vachetta looks with their “Lark Tan” suede upper and glossy midsole which reads “People Everywhere Are Created Equal” or P.E.A.C.E. Both looks feature a subtle Commonwealth branding on the woven label’s backside. Both shoes are insanely clean sights to marvel at, and showcase the laser-focus vision of Commonwealth co-founders Mike Concepcion and Omar Quiambao.
