Here we present a first look at the SOPHNET. x Vans Sk8-Hi Zip-Up silhouette. The Japanese imprint has tapped the classic Vans Sk8-Hi and added a classy twist to the timeless design. Featuring a black suede and canvas upper with contrasting hits of white at the branding and laces, the shoe maintains its classic aesthetic, but with a subtle modern update. A standout element is the metal zipper at the inside ankle of the shoe, which looks great and allows for easy access into the shoe. Rounding out the design is a contrasting white vulcanized midsole and gum waffle outsole. Retailing for ¥13,000 JPY (approximately $130 USD) plus tax, head over to SOPHNET. for more on the SOPHNET. x Vans Sk8-Hi Zip-Up.
