Vans has resurrected its classic Acer NI, a sleek low-top silhouette originally debuted in the mid-’90s. This release follows Taka Hayashi and Vans Vault’s collaborative Snake Trail LX seen just last week.
Coming in both black and white colorways, the silhouette is enlivened by a clean monochromatic design that’s accentuated by contrasting textures. Smooth full-grain leather appears along the tongue and heel counter, offsetting the delicate suede uppers that dominate most of the shoe’s body. The shoe comes with a reinforced throatline, complemented by a tiny “Vans” tag while bold checkerboard patterns accent the sidewalls. Other details like “ACER” embroidery at the rear quarter and Vans’ vulcanized midsole round off the shoe’s understated design.
Both colorways of the Vans Acer NI are currently available on BILLY’s Tokyo’s website for $94 USD.
