Too hot for boots, too cool for sandals? Split the difference with a pair of batik-print sneakers from Vans. Produced in partnership with Della, a fair-trade label that employs artisans in Ghana to craft vibrant one-of-a-kind textiles, the six-piece capsule for men and women clads the skatewear brand’s classic Sk8-Hi Reissue, Era, Authentic, Sk8-Hi Slim kicks in rich colors inspired by Volta’s landscape, including shades of blue, yellow, red, and green that evoke its riverbanks and tree canopies. Another plus: Proceeds from the sale of these products will support Della’s efforts to broaden jobs, education, and skills-training in the region.

+ Vans x Della $60-$70

    I think it’s admirable of Vans to partner with a fair-trade label. The prints are lovely and the shoes look great. Does the actual shoe production adhere to fair-trade procedures? (www.cayisa.wordpress.com)
