The Vans Era Stacked elevates the classic Era 

The Era is a classic skate style sneaker designed by two pro skaters way back 1976. Due to its popularity, the Vans Era was released in different iterations. Unlike the other Era models, this is the first to show off a chunky platform style. The Era Stacked really did take the classic Vans Era silhouette to another level.

Vans Era Stacked vs other platform Vans sneakers

The brand is well-known for its skate shoes. As time passed by, it has rereleased most of its models in different iterations. Some were dressed up in thicker platforms, including the Vans Era.

Some of these platform sneakers are the Vans Old Skool Platform, the Vans Slip-On Platform, and the Vans Authentic Platform 2.0. Like these silhouettes, the Vans Era Stacked also gets to keep the classic look of the original model. However, the difference of the Era Stacked from these platform models is its lugged outsole.
