It's beautiful.

The Vans Authentic has just received a major revamp, complete with fringe detailing down the tongue.

The new style is the lovechild equivalent of a fringed loafer and sneaker, combining the original low-top silhouette with an all-leather upper. It's topped off with gold-tipped laces, too.

Arriving in a light ‘Whisper Pink’ colourway as well as black, we’re tipping this baby won’t be around for long.

While there’s no word yet on availability in Australia, you can shop the Authentic Fringe DX at international retailers like Nordstrom and Titolo.
