The second delivery of what has been by far one of this year’s best shoe collaborations recently landed on our shelf. As the Chris Pfanner Era Pro was a favourite at the shop, it will probably come as no surprise the Julien Stranger’s colourway of the Authentic Pro has received just as warm welcome. While, obviously, suede versions of the Era vastly surpass the durable capabilities of any canvas models; canvas does have certain traits that are preferable to suede. Namely, it holds it’s shape better. Though recently there have been certain attempts to re-enforce canvas for it be better utilised as a suitable upper material for skate shoes and Vans have got on board too.
