Kachinsky’s Etnies: A detailed look

I ain’t gonna lie, the insoles really make this shoe for me. The overall shoe looks great, but I think the insoles are a perfect detail for a Kachinsky shoe. Nice one!

Vans X Cult

Vans & Cult are set to drop the shoes they have been working on.

How do I know? Because I was lucky enough to get some of these in the mail recently. There are 2 styles, a mid (Atwood ) and a low top (Brasco), which came out nice. It’s easy to think that these are just black sneakers, but the materials feel quality and more than likely, you can wear these everyday. They also come with an extra set of orange laces if you want more pop.

From Vans:
Both shoes are wrapped in high-end black leather and use a waxed textile on accent panels for a rich look and feel. The vulcanized outsole and gum-colored WaffleGrip tread is a direct tie back to Vans heritage, while the sockliner artwork is a CULT original that ties back to the CULT attitude. Both shoes are lined with a 6oz. canvas in hunter orange from the CULT color palette and feature our Megathane midsole to keep both styles comfortable all day long, as well as prevent heel bruising while riding.
