Alexander Lee Chang & Vans Apply the Boa Lacing System to the Iconic Sk8-Hi Model

Available for pre-order.

By //Footwear

Alexander Lee Chang has linked up with Vans once again to offer a creative spin on yet another classic silhouette. A year ago to the day, we got a look at their collaborative “Boa Skool” creation, in which the Tokyo-based artist applied a Boa lacing system to a two-toned black and blue Old Skool silhouette.

This time around, Chang opts for the cult classic Sk8-Hi model — choosing once more to apply the same distinct lacing mechanism to the Vans hi-top. Seen above rocking a core black base, ample doses of white brighten up the somber palette, as shown in the exposed stitching, signature side stripe and midsole. Priced at ¥22,680 JPY (approximately $208 USD), the Alexander Lee Chang x Vans “Boa Top” is expected to arrive sometime in November, but is now available for pre-order at Shelter.

In case you missed it, here’s a closer look at the upcoming colorway for Nike’s M2K Tekno model.
