Vans California has revived one of its classic silhouettes for Holiday 2012, giving the Sk8-Hi a special patriotic colorway for the new season. The “American Flag” reissue pays homage to the brand’s roots in the western United States, reprinting the stars and stripes in a pattern along the upper. Vans has a longstanding tradition of printing the American flag across many of its models, yet the Sk8-Hi gets a full upgrade. This edition uses a variety of high-quality materials and treatments, including washed canvas, vamp suede and full-grain leather laces. The “American Flag” is available in limited quantities at Italy’s AW LAB.
