Judging that those posts are from Vans Japan and ABC Mart, those very well may be a Japan exclusive. They have a whole different deal going on over there. These are some Vans I took a picture of in Japan in 2008:






In any case, what size are you Dylan Slip addicts for? My shop still has some. We're in Canada but they're on sale. DM me if you want to check what we have.

Yeah, not exactly sure on the situation but I read on ABC Mart's wiki page that they are they hold all the rights to Vans distro in Japan, and it seems like they make their own Vans exclusively for the Japan market. When I was there 3 years ago I went into a ABC Mart store and saw some Stan Smith (Van Smith?) knockoffs. I think these are them:


But is the Authentic Slip a complete knockoff? It's literally just an Authentic, all the same panels, without laces and lace holes right?

At any rate, it's like the wild west out east. They get to make whatever without worrying about copyright or design infringement. I doubt those Authentic Slips will make it out to the US or Europe ever, just like the black leather ones from a couple years ago.

Vans Japan are a rogue state; they can literally make anything they like, those shoes posted are just the tip of the iceberg. On the surface it might look like a straight up Dylan clone, but even Dylan got the design from a Gucci loafer right? If they straight up bit his huf shoe (the non slip on one), then sure get your knickers in a knot, not sure if it’s worth it over this one though...

Must be the new Skate Half-Cab. Looks good. I wonder if the shape is closer to the originals.

I posted in the new vans thread with some details i've been piecing together, but it seems like these new skate classics were redesigned with the classic line in mind. the foxing is reduced a few mm and the diamond pattern on the toecap is different/deeper. think the insole is revised too but havent seen in person to confirm. rubber is same as rowans and there were complaints on the white midsole of the new sick stick attracting dirt, so this sheen is to prevent that. seems like the classic colors are coming soon to the skate classics line.

The insoles are pop Cush. But like you said, no idea if a revised one or not.

Vans Japan do indeed have a bunch of stuff that's exclusive to Japan, but they also have plenty of models and colours months in advance to everywhere else, so it's not impossible that those Authentic slip ons could hit EU & US. Simply speculation though, so could go either way.

In my opinion though, they suck and should have never left the designer's head never mind Japan.

I believe a shop posted specs and said they added a shank in the heel. Probably the same insole (since they just launched PopCush a few months ago), but you'll likely notice a more rigid feeling sole under the heel, depending on what that shank is made of/how stiff it is.

yep exactly on the shank. I think there’s less of a “cup” shape to the new skate classics insole. But yeah, same formula foam

Anyone else see these? Dylan slips made by Vans. Only in Japan.

To specify, they are Authentic style slip ons. Wish I could but them. Looks like only in shops in Japan

previous page.

The fact theyre only in japan keeps them from making so much more in sales, which sucks for them and anyone wanting dylan-eske shoes. Someone I wish I couldve met, but stoked on any stories i heard about him

For those not on IG and  interested in the Gamma on foot.
Here is Julian Davidson after skating em a bit.

They have that thermo-weld (idk the tech terms for it lol) layer in between the two suede layers, just like the Reynolds G6 did, so that's nice for durability :)



Apologies if it's been shared already or I'm posting a lot lately.

been kinda disconnected of this thread lately. what's that emerica model davison's skating? shoe looks sweet

that's the gamma redo in white suede, dropping after the first colorways which are white leather and black suede/gum sole, which come out next month i think.

they do look good.

For all my size 13 guys, I looked at every shop I could find and none of them carried size 13. However, if you order direct from Last Resort, they have a few 13s in stock. I picked up the white black lows an the navy highs in 13.

saw that as well! I had hit up last resort account/Sami? on IG back when the first season dropped about 13’s and he said he was hoping they’d be in this drop, so that’s great.
I’d check out the size chart tho. I wear 13 in vans pro and numeric and Nike and the 12 last resorts fit me, even w a bit of room. I measured my foot per directions

Damn, that's good to know. I'm pretty sure I'll fit a 13 in LR but I guess I'll find out when they get here!

lol, i just measured according to the last resort chart and apparently i'm a us 7/7.5? the only shoes in size 8 i fit in are cons. 8.5 is usually snug and 9 is like a chiller.

maybe my foot is just too wide, idk.

that seems drastic, hah. but part of me thinks it could be the EU to US size conversion, too. I don't know exactly. You want some toe room so just note that when measuring..

For Last Resort shoes, I'm a 9 in Vans and 8.5 in Cons. My Last Resorts in size 9 fit just a little big, but nothing to complain about. Next LS shoe i'll try for 8.5, but if you are wearing socks, it's all good.

Also, great shoe, super comfy and last a while. Loads of board feel right away.

oh for sure. i added 5-10 mm to my footlength. and i know eu to us size can be iffy. i mean, i sold skateshoes for a living for years and fit was always something we'd talk a lot about to customers. you have to know what shoe bags out hard, which ones keep their shape, check out how fits change with rereleases and stuff. you also don't want every third pair be sent back so it's better to be able to note which shoes are tts and which ones run larger or smaller. 

japanese size is usually the most consistent, since it's supposed to be an absolute measurement of the inside, but that can be fucked up by the company as well or simply untrue as stated.

but i honestly haven't measured my own feet in like forever, i just always had eu 41-42/us 8-9/uk 7-8, unless we're talking standard chucks. those i had to get in us 7.5.

it's fine though, i hope my local gets them in so i can just try them on. i reckon from the testimonials i'll land on 8-8.5.
