Built around these same ideals, the Vans x Chris Johanson Authentic SF reinvigorates our original lace-up silhouette with renewable and sustainable materials. Made with 100% organically grown cotton uppers and 100% jute fiber laces, this low-top shoe combines Johanson’s abstract aesthetic with a construction that you can feel good about. We’ve even engineered an all new eco rubber compound made from responsibly sourced natural rubber instead of petroleum-derived synthetic rubber, making our legendary grip and durability more eco-friendly.
The Vans x Chris Johanson Authentic SF contains less than 1% by outsole weight of material scraps from the factory cutting floor, which have been chopped up and inserted into the outsoles, ultimately diverting these materials from a landfill.
