Los Angeles skateboarding hub Lotties Skateshop has taken to Instagram to tease a trifecta of Vans collaborations. Consisting of fresh takes on the Sk8-Hi, Era and what appears to be a Sk8-Lo, each infused with Lotties’ signature irreverent flair, the co-created footwear offerings are decidedly ready for any and all summertime skate sessions.

Leading things off is the Sk8-Hi, done up in black with grey printed graphics, white contrast stitching and navy trim. This print mixes everything from hand-scrawled lettering to bold figures and the Lotties store phone number. The white Jazz stripe also adds a debossed text hit that reads “Griptape is $5 dipshit,” a cheeky jab at clueless customers that any skate shop or retail store employee can surely appreciate.

Next up is a vivid red Era that features a brown suede heel piece with yet another debossed Lotties graphic in a Goonies-style font. Lastly, the supposed Sk8-Lo swathes its quarter panels in white print and embroiders a jagged, lightning-style Lotties spellout graphic in tonal fashion on the heel.

Full images of the shoes have yet to be revealed, but Lotties has mentioned a July release in its Instagram posts, so you can expect more information soon.

Moving from skateboarding to hoops, Nike Basketball has revealed special EYBL iterations of the Kobe 5 Protro and KD 13, which will be given to league participants — even though the summer season has been cancelled.
