Vans Old Skool Stacked: Luxed-up classic

When it comes to classic low-top kicks that won’t hurt your budget, the Vans Old Skool fits the bill. Skaters, hip-hop heads, celebrities, and sneaker lovers are rocking these as they are among the comfiest and most stylish from the California-based brand. Vans made it even elegant when it came up with the Old Skool Stacked by adding a deck of rubber to its sole. 

You'll be seeing the world from a different perspective with that boost in height and style. If you’re a fan of platform kicks, you might want to include this in your sneaker stack. If there’s still room for another pair in your closet, see if you’ll like the Vans Era version too.

Vans Old Skool Stacked vs. Vans Old Skool Platform

As their names imply, both kicks are built with an elevated sole from heel-to-toe and carry the same DNA as the 1977 Old Skool. The stacked version comes in a more upbeat style in pastel and large logos, whereas the platform one leans toward the traditional look. The checkerboard is another variety with a platform base. While these kicks are budget-friendly, the Old Skool Stacked are priced a fraction higher but assembled with softer padding around the collar.
