Following on from their recent three-way collaboration with Born Free, Blends and Vans Vault are back with yet another pair of reworked sneakers, this time around serving up the Sk8-Hi Zip Reissue.

For its Vans Vault Sk8-Hi Zip Reissue, Blends has combined a sturdy and durable black canvas upper with touches of black suede and white leather. The suede appears on the eyestay and the heel, where on the former you can find a thread of waxed black laces and on the rear, a heavy-duty zipper.

White leather appears in the form of a reworked Jazz stripe on the mid-panels, which in true Blends form is turned into a bone. This complements the white midsole, which itself is contrasted by a black branded license plate found on the heel.

Take a look at the Blends x Vans Vault Sk8-Hi Zip Reissue in the gallery above, and pick up a pair for yourself exclusively on Blends’ webstore on October 24.
