Deluxe x Vans SK8-HI Preview
In a relatively short existence, Deluxe has developed a strong place in Tokyo’s fashion scene. Alongside sister brand Bedwin, the two have released a consistent string of well-developed and refined collections. Earning the notice of Vans, they have teamed up to offer their own interpretation of the SK8-HI for release next year. The shoe features a textured leather similar to wood grain and previously seen on such designer goods as Louis Vuitton’s Epi collection. The Deluxe tag can be seen along the top of the laces with a paisley lining. The shoe isn’t slated for a release until May of 2009, however pre-orders are currently available at Dedue.
