Remember when Vans made all those running shoes during the 80s? Well, the Tesella isn’t quite on that level of a departure, but if you were skimming along without paying close attention, you might have missed that this was a Vans shoe. The basic elements of a Vans shoe are all present; they’ve just been given some modernizing tweaks.

The overall silhouette is a sleeker take on the classic Vans form. A slimmer, grooved unit that would not look out place among the modern, minimalist movement replaces the traditional, thick, vulcanized waffle print sole. The upper eschews bold color blocked or patterned canvas in favor of neutral, earth toned suede, although the cross weaved side panels do serve as a reference to the iconic, Vans checkerboard pattern.

The Tesella is a sophisticated twist on classic Vans style.
