Celebrating your fave animated fam.
Low-top silhouette with a sturdy canvas and suede upper features El Barto graffiti print for a fun vibe. It also includes re-enforced toe cap to withstand repeated wear, padded collar for support and flexibility, and signature rubber waffle outsole.
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.
