As retro as it can get.
A modern kick on the OG Sk8-Hi, these sneaks have a canvas and suede upper with upgraded OrthoLite sockliners for a smooth ride. The classic red and blue colourways are sure to make you nostalgic.
The Sk8-Hi entered the sneaker world in 76 (just after Era's launch) and took the streets by storm. After all, it had everything that the skateboarding fam was looking for in a shoe more padding, better comfort, leather-and-canvas for durability, and most importantly, ankle protection. The mix of high-top, padded design with the famous jazz stripe or sidestripe quickly made Sk8-Hi popular among skaters. Since then, it has survived the test of time and continues to be the shoe of choice for many.
Gaining popularity as many of the skateboarding greats began wearing them, the rugged lace-up soon came to make up the vivid pop of colours seen on skate parks. Now available in every possible colour and combination, Vans adds personality to any ensemble.
