People tend not to use the word corking these days so much do they? As in ‘wow that is a corking pair of trainers‘ or ‘what have you got on your feet? Absolute corkers them mate!’. Well maybe now is the right time to get corking back into every day parlance because Vans have made a pair of Authentics with a cork design canvas upper. Traditionally at this stage I would make some kind of pun about popping open the champagne or going for a walk around a certain city in Southern Ireland but I’m better than that. Actually I’m not, it’s just Monday morning and I’ve got a very heavy corkload erm I mean workload.
