Vans has given its Sk8-Hi and Era sneakers a mythological twist with the release of these two new graphic-printed pairs. The pairs are adorned with traditional drawings of the sun, moon, stars, lightning and more, but focus on the ancient ouroboros symbol, which shows a dragon eating its own tail.

Both pairs take on a traditional Vans colorway of “Black/True White,” with the Sk8-Hi combining black suede with the off-white-hued canvas. The Era uses canvas across its entire upper, splitting the ouroboros print on its mid panels and vamp with mythological drawings on the toe and heel components.

Rounding out each pair is its crisp white sole unit, with both sporting a red license plate at the rear. Take a look at the latest Vans Sk8-Hi and Era in the gallery above, and pick up both pairs from HBX now. The Sk8-Hi retails for $83 USD, while the Era is priced at $62 USD.
