Vans’ classic sneakers operate as a canvas for any interesting ideas the brains on the design team come up with. Some ideas are more intricate than others, like this “Floral” needlepoint Authentic DX, available now.

Vans’ massive array of footwear allows the California brand plenty of space to reinterpret various styles as they see fit, like this week’s surprise release of the classic Authentic silhouette in a new needlepoint construction. Originally known as the “Style 44”, the Authentic is beloved around the world for its simple style and unobtrusive comfort. For this limited-edition release, the solid canvas upper has been removed in favor of a woven needlepoint build, with a special floral pattern mixed in throughout the uppers of each shoe.


Vans’ new limited-edition Floral Needlepoint version of the classic Authentic 44 quietly released earlier this week, and is currently available from a small selection of retailers like New York’s Kith. This needlepoint edition of the Authentic DX will likely arrive at more stores in the coming weeks, along with a price tag of just $90. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Vans release news.
