The Vans Sk8-Hi



You’d be pretty hard-pressed to find a Vans silhouette that hasn’t become an icon, but maybe even the Sk8-Hi ranks above the rest. Seriously, who hasn’t copped a pair of Sk8-Hi’s?

This high top silhouette was first released in 1978, originally under the unassuming name of “Style 38” (renamed in ‘95). It became the second style to bear the brands signature sided-stripe design, the first being –other icon-the Old Skool

The Sk8-Hi quickly rocketed to fame in the skateboarding scene. It proved to be not just a silhouette elevated in both comfort and functionality, but style also

Since the 70’s the Sk8-Hi has been revamped and reissued many times over. No colourway or material has been off-limits, truly demonstrating the versatility of this much-loved sneaker
