Vans Skate SK8-Hi Shoes in TecTuff Black. Arriving as part of the brand’s revolutionary new ‘Skate Classics’ collection, these reinvented Vans SK8-Hi shoes are designed with skate-specific endurance at the fore-front of their visionary development. Pairing heritage with modern-day necessity, these cushioned high-top sneakers are actively redesigned with an updated undercut, a new bottom-plate, double-up foxings and with two new sockliners across the interior for improved impact-resistant and cushioned comfort. The reinforced and water-repellent TecTuff construction pairs resilient hard-wearing canvas with brushed-suede for a classic yet contemporary aesthetic, whilst the contrasting white-stitch detailings complements the silhouette’s after-dark aesthetic, all-black leather sidewall stripes and the design’s new and improved checkerboard flag. Vans’ iconic Waffle outsole delivers exemplary traction well-suited to any given terrain, whilst the re-styled strap-secured tongue across the 7-eyelet lacing system provides the wearer with a securer heel-fit as and when required. The padded high-rise collar complements the re-moulded heel counter for added stability, whilst the creative redesign of the classic heel-scab in favour of its skate-specific mark-up helps seal the design with an ode to performance-focused precision.
Pairing ‘yesterday’s skate shoes’ with contemporary skate-specific necessity, Vans’ revolutionary ‘Skate Classics’ collection sets its sights on supplying redesigned performative excellency across a handful of its most favoured silhouettes. Keeping heritage and age-old tradition alive, Van’s delivers improvements in boardfeel, traction, longevity and wear-resistance whilst keeping all-time skate progression in mind.
