Continuing with our coverage of the Opening Day Collection by Vans Vault and the MLB, we present you with a look at the Era LX “San Fransisco Giants”.

The Giants have yet to open the season at home. They’ll be doing so in just a few days, as they return to AT&T Park in San Fran to go head to head against the Atlanta Braves. To coincide with the game Vans Vault and the MLB will be releasing the Era LX “San Fransisco Giants”. Flipping the script somewhat, compared to the limited edition Majestic jersey included with the sneakers, the Era LX sports a black leather base as opposed to white, with orange contrast stitching and an orange lining.
