This is not the first time Taka Hayashi has worked with Vans. Previously, Vans released several sneakers including the No Skool 2 Mid, Owens Hi, and the Rowley “Shambles” Mid all designed by the artist. Now Active’s “Drop Sneakers Not Bombs” campaign for 2008 will also include a collaboration with Taka Hayashi and Vans. This year they will be teaming up to drop two new sneakers, the Half Cab and the J-Lay Mid. Like the previous Taka Hayashi designed shoes, these new shoes will carry a similar style utilizing simple colors along with nice materials and customization. Look for these to drop sometime in November!
