Continuing a longstanding partnership, artist Taka Hayashi and Vault By Vans have returned with a new Summer 2020 collection of modernized takes on archival skate styles. Consisting of six total shoes — two makeups each of the Sk8-Lo, Style 47 and Style 98 — the collection draws from vintage military apparel and uses a modernized, QR code-inspired iteration of Vans‘ timeless checkerboard print.

A silhouette that looks like an Old Skool with a Sk8-Hi toebox, the Sk8-Lo is the centerpiece of the collection. Appearing in “Black” and “Total Eclipse,” each makeup uses two-tone QR checkerboard print on quarter panels and heels, alternate-colored Jazz Stripes on lateral and medial sides, high-gloss midsoles with a faint print and special circular badges on the tongue tag.

Meanwhile, the Style 47 offers a look similar to the Slip-On with its laceless build. It’s done up in “Dusty Olive” and “White Sand,” each of which uses a full canvas upper. Both add colorful stripes to the heel — yellow for “Dusty Olive,” orange for “White Sand — and patch three eyelets onto the medial midfoot. The toebox’s lined, slightly puffy detailing draws from vintage military jackets, and printed midsoles complete the look.

Last but not least, the Style 98 keeps things simple in “Black” and “Marshmallow.” Each presents a 5/8 cut collar, and uses a rich leather upper with suede overlays on the toebox and heel. Black and blue tags and tabs add a little colorful flair. All six styles are completed with abstract outsole patterns inspired by a lunar eclipse.

The Taka Hayashi x Vault By Vans Summer 2020 collection is available exclusively at Vault dealers like Dover Street Market, Sneakersnstuff and KITH.

Moving from collaborations to charity, Vans has expanded its Foot The Bill customization program into Europe.
