UPDATE (November 11, 2019): Two new iterations have been unveiled in the GORE-TEX Vans lineup. Taking on the similar all-over crosswalk-type pattern, the Old Skool arrives in a “White/Blue” colorway while the Sk8-Hi is offered in a stunning “Brown/Purple.”

The Vans Old Skool “White/Blue” and Sk8-Hi “Brown/Purple” are available now on billys-tokyo.net for approximately $150 USD and $160 USD respectively.


ORIGINAL STORY (October 31, 2019): GORE-TEX‘s durable textiles have been sweeping the world of footwear this fall, and Vans is the latest brand to call upon its lauded material for new takes on the Old Skool and Sk8-Hi. Dressing both in a print that combines GORE-TEX text logos and line graphics, Vans has given its duo of esteemed skate silhouettes a bold new spin.

The Old Skool combines a burgundy base with navy suede overlays and a blue leather Jazz Stripe. A small royal blue ollie pad appears on the heel, and a GORE-TEX tag is delicately pinned on the collar. Meanwhile, the Sk8-Hi’s towering-by-comparison top half uses a retro green for the base, black suede for the overlays and toebox, and a black leather Jazz Stripe, which features the same GORE-TEX tag as its low-top counterpart. A white ollie pad arrives on the heel, and a strip of taped detailing runs down from the collar to touch the pad’s top. Each is completed by a white midsole and vulcanized gum outsole.

The Vans GORE-TEX Old Skool and Sk8-Hi are available now at retailers like Warsaw Sneaker Store. The Old Skool is priced at zł510 PLN (approx. $133 USD), while the SK8-Hi arrives at zł550 PLN (approx. $144 USD).

Elsewhere in the world of footwear, the Dr. Martens 1460 Boot was crowned 2019’s Shoe of the Year by Footwear News.
