Fall 2013 sees the fabled Sk8-Hi taking inspiration from military boot construction with the forthcoming introduction of a “Desert Suede” Pack as a part of the Vans California collection. Thick premium hairy suede appears on the eyestay and vamp of the classic skateboarding high-top as rugged Cordura takes care of the tongue and quarter panels for long-lasting durability. Finally, rope laces are coupled with the leather Jazz Stripe branding as the silhouette retains its usual vulcanized rubber outsole and white rubber foxing. Look for Highrise Grey and Ombre Blue colorways of the “Desert Suede” Sk8-Hi to hit Vans California stockists in the months ahead.
