The thing about shoes is, there are only so many silhouettes in circulation that are worth copying or wearing. So it’s no surprise when variations of a popular shoe spring up over night. But some silhouettes can be made better than the original. Take for instance, the Bally Herald slip-on sneaker.

Like anything luxury, this is merely an elevated take on a classic. In this case, we can’t help but think of Vans and its iconic slip-on sneaker. The fact that they’re both slip-on style sneakers is really where the comparison ends, though. The Bally sneaker is a fully grown-up shoe that’s ready to embrace your fast-paced, grown-up life.

Rather than using canvas, Bally opted for a buttery smooth nappa leather in black for the upper. The lining of the shoe is also outfitted in leather for instant comfort, while also eliminating the inevitable blisters that manifest themselves when breaking in a new pair of shoes.

Bally’s signature trainspotting stripes take on a black and white motif for this particular slip-on and adorn each side of the tongue. A pull tab on the heel makes for easy entry. Despite being a sneaker, the Herald is pretty versatile in that you could wear it just about anywhere for practically any occasion.

One last thing: even if you do pick these up, you don’t have to get rid of your Vans.
