Vans recently teamed up with Hong Kong-based streetwear label MADNESS for a footwear collection of two iconic models: the Sk8-Hi and the Sk8-Mid. The line combines MADNESS founder Shawn Yue’s fine sense of style with the Vans Classics’ styling ease, urban versatility and encouragement of creative self-expression. Both the Sk8-Hi and the Sk8-Mid feature gray and blue full-suede uppers, creating an understated two-tone effect in two colorways: a monochromatic light gray upper with a white midsole, and a black and Prussian blue upper with a black midsole. Other subtle details include the quotation “all work and no play makes you mad” printed on the midsoles, a line from the tattoo on Shawn’s hand inspired by the movie The Shining‘s famous verse “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” The proportion and detailing of the tongue gusset are specifically tailored to Shawn’s styling, which allows you to wear the pair with or without laces, whereas the Sk8-Hi features an additional zipper in the rear for easy access. The Vans x MADNESS collection will pre-launch at the MADNESS Beijing Shop and online store on February 11. A wider release will take place at select Vans stores in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Japan and Taiwan on February 18.
