Vans’ latest sneaker release includes two new styles that are designed to look better as you wear them.
For the Sk8-Hi, the shoe features a black suede-based upper and through various wear, the material will reveal a bold red hue underneath. The upper has also been redesigned by incorporating foxing tape creating a deeper knurl pattern on the toe for durability. Rounding out the stealthy execution is a matching vulcanized sole.
“All New Skate Classics: Built Extra Tough on the Inside For Skateboarding Completely redesigned for modern skateboarding, the all-new Skate Classics collection delivers more of what skateboarders need to enable maximum progression,” Vans wrote in the product description for the Sk8-Hi.
The Vans Berle, which is the first-ever signature shoe for the brand’s team rider Elijah Berle, is also included in the collection. Unlike its Sk8-Hi counterpart, the base layer of the shoe sports a bright blue hue after multiple wears. The model’s signature design element is the WaffleControl tech providing improved control on the skateboard while increasing support and maximizing grip.
The Vans SK8-Hi and Berle “Wearaway” styles are available now at Vans.com and each pair comes with an $85 price tag.
