|The Sk8-Hi is quite possibly one of Vans’ most iconic styles. The first high-top designed for skateboarding, the Sk8-Hi is both simple and stylish in design, with the coveted Sidestripe making them distinctively Vans. With 2016 marking 50 years of Vans, the brand has joined up with a number of iconic personalities to commemorate the Sk8-Hi; a shoe that looks just as good today as it did in its 1978 beginning.
Vans will switch up things for Spring 2018 by offering an updated take on its classic checkerboard design. The California born and bred brand has reimagined the pattern on its Old Skool, Sk8-Hi, Authentic and Slip-On silhouettes. Courtesy of sneaker retailer The Chimp Store ,we find the shoes donning new color combinations as well as new materials in celebration of the new year. Get your Christmas money ready and keep an eye out for the sneakers to hit stockists beginning this month.
Spring is not too far away, it’s time to bust out your pastel-colored sneakers. If you’re looking for a fresh new pair, take a look at these two colorways of the Vans Authentic said to be BEAUTY & YOUTH exclusives.The Authentics come in your choice of Pastel Pink or Mint Green. Each pair appears to be done in the traditional canvas construction with hits of White noted on the laces and sole unit. The eyelets come in tonal fashion, while the small Vans tag on the lateral side also comes in White.
This Vans Sk8-Hi takes on a simple and classic look as the popular high top silhouette gets covered in a buttery black leather all throughout the upper that even extends onto the inner liner for a premium feel. Perforations are then placed on the toe with white accents seen on the Vans sidestripe, tongue branding, and the vulcanized rubber midsole serving as a contrast. You can pick up this Summer 2017 colorway of the Vans Sk8-Hi at select Vans stockists now for a retail price of $70. Any Vans aficionados plan on scooping up a pair?Vans has given the Sk8-Hi Slim a pastel pink wash. Its “Blossom” colorway is a sweet mix of blush with hits of white on the midsole and laces. The upper is constructed from a soft suede with leather accents on the sidestripe. Compared to its glittery companion, the new model has a more traditional finish, and the slim silhouette and rubber outsole make for the perfect summer shoe.
