Thanks to his penchant for Native American inspiration, luxurious materials, and premium craftsmanship, artist and designer Taka Hayashi has long been a go-to for Vans and its collaborative endeavors. Now, after making over the Sk8-Hi and Classic Slip-On alongside both Vans and Pendleton last winter, Hayashi is back at it, taking on the classic silhouettes once again for Spring/Summer 2016. Appearing under the Vault imprint as per usual, the new collab offers up “Nomad” looks for each shoe, constructing the high- and low-tops in buffed leather with bold color-blocking, tonal stitching, leather laces and perforated detailing throughout.

Retailing for $150 and $135 USD respectively, the Sk8-His and Slip-Ons are available now in both black and brown from Vault dealers like SSENSE.
