Taka Hayashi & Vans are back, this time with a re-worked version of the classic “Checkerboard” Sk8-Hi and Slip-on. The collaborative footwear options see a weave of black and white fabric rather than the customary printed design over the uppers.

Other enhancements include opposing black-and-white Vans “Jazz” Sidestripes, leather lining, suede uppers, and co-branding on the heel and on the tongue. The Taka Hayashi x Vans SK8-Hi and Slip-on retail for a price of $155 USD and $136 USD, respectively. Those interested can head over to FOOTSHOP now.

For more footwear news, NikeCourt is set to release the Court Lite in an “Orange and Tan” colorway.
