Got to see these samples and tried getting them, but eventually failed. Haha.
The difference between the sample and released pair were:
- The back heel stitching "Way of Life".
- Used all suede material (sample) instead of suede and canvas (released pair).
- Navy-Blue suede seem a lot darker.
- Insole: "Vans" patch stitched on the insole instead of printed.
(NOTE: I don't have these so don't bother asking if I'm selling them.)
