Vans has given its classic Sk8-Hi model an eye-catching “Japanese Type” treatment in two colorways of black/white and black/red/white.

The signature high-top features black suede paneling, the famous Vans Checkerboard print at the quarter and a leather branding stripe. “Vans” in Japanese Katakana is seen embroidered at the ankle and printed along the midsole for a bold graphic effect.

Both colorways on the Vans Sk8-Hi “Japanese Type” are available now for €95 EUR ($110 USD) each at sivasdescalzo.
