Niagara x Vans SK8-Hi

These Vans Sk8-His are a result of a collaboration between Vans and Niagara, a Detroit based artist and musician. A founding member of the proto-punk band Destroy All Monsters, she has of late risen to notoriety through her artwork. A cynical mix of Lichtenstein style comic strip women & riot girl attitudes, her pieces are highly sought after in the Lowbrow art scene. The Sk8-Hi model juxtaposes a subtle black color scheme with splashes of bright yellow and red mixed in with artwork depicting martini glasses and glass bottles. Sure to be an attention grabbing release, these have already released at DQM.

Vans 45LX "Fixed"

With the fixed gear scene increasing with more riders day in, day out, quintessential skate brand Vans has stepped in to offer bike riders their own little niche sneaker. On the surface, the 45LX seems very similar to Vans’ current Era/Authentic styles, however minute details along with a saddle bag would speak otherwise to the legion of riders out there. The details include 3M highlights on the laces and marquee heel logo. However, the unassuming details will definitely come across as a genuine effort for the fledging fixed gear market. No word yet on a release date. Source: Crooked Tongues
