Vans has literally produced thousands of variations over the past 50 years, and while some of them haven’t been around for long, there are four major lace models that have really proven themselves. Some of them are maybe, if not, the best shoes and sneakers ever. Follow these steps to lace everyone – and remember that there are certain lacing methods that work better for some models than others.
Here is the third one out of the four models:
3. Vans Era
According to Kacamata Rayban, the Era was designed by legendary skateboard pioneers Tony Alva and Stacey Peralta and is basically a cushioned update to the Authentic, but with subtle design tweaks.
The model maintains the same canvas construction and a very similar silhouette, but also has a padded collar and more jazzy color combinations. It is the shoe of choice for a new generation of skaters in the late 1970s.

Because of its similarity to the Authentic, the Vans Era should be laced the same way. Due to the typical color combinations, however, you have a little more scope to get creative with your laces.
– Pass the ends of the laces down through the two lower holes and leave the left and right laces in the same length.
– Look at the shoe and insert the left cord into the next hole on the right. It should be crossing over the tongue now.
– Mirror what you just did but to the other side by sticking the right tip through the top of the next hole on the left.
– Always run the lacing from side to side, remembering to insert each line into the top of each hole. Repeat the same process with your other shoe so that they are similar.
