Vans is bidding farewell to its legendary Warped Tour rock festival with a pair of limited-edition Sk8-His. The pair commemorates the end of an era, which has seen stellar performances from the likes of Blink-182 and Green Day.
The celebratory pair features an all-over graphic print that combines 25 years worth of poster art from the festival, reworking its canvas upper in a mix-matched array of colors and designs. Its mosaic upper features guitar motifs and artist portraits that, alongside the artworks, paint an image of the lasting legacy of the Warped Tour.
Black suede has been used to overlay the canvas upper for structure and support on the heel and the eyestay, while a contrasting white Jazz Stripe run between the two on the mid-panels. The Sk8-Hi’s signature white and rubber gum vulcanized sole unit contrasts the commemorative pair’s bright upper, while a smattering of “Off The Wall” branding seen on the tongue and license plate round off the shoe’s historic aesthetic.
You can purchase a pair of the Vans Sk8-Hi “Warped Tour 25 Years” from Vans stores and online for $70 USD now.
