Our friends over at Extra Butterhave just gotten in the newest silhouette from the Vans Surf line, a model known as the Raglan. This new mid-cut style comes equipped with eco-friendly features that are a staple of the growingly popular Vans Surf collection. The Raglan, which is has a super lightweight design comes with a waste-free, ultra-flexible injection-molded one piece outsole and a moisture wicking anti-bacterial bamboo lining. Taking the eco-friendly features a little bit further Vans Surf used water-based glue and ink. The glue and ink used are all water-based.
Available now at Extra Butter are two colorways of the Raglan. The first, which is shown above, is known as the ‘wine tasting’ colorway due to its purple/grape upper. The interior lining of the sneakers, as well as the panel running down the heel both use a white/purple stripped pattern. The sneakers were done up by Alex Knost of the Captain Fin Co. – a D.I.Y. company that specializes in artistic hand-foiled signature fins. Their branding comes in the form on an anchor placed inside a circle. Included is a second pair of laces which match the little magenta-colored stitch below the lace eyelets.
The second pair, which is shown after the jump, is the Huntington Beach pro-surfer – “Timmy Reyes” colorway, which is comprised of a tough black oiled canvas on the upper. The interior of this pair sports a plush black denim collar lining for comfort. Black and burnt orange laces are included with this pair.
Follow the jump to check out more detailed pictures and hit up Extra Butter now to get either of the two.
