Taka Hayashi and Vans Vault are no strangers to collaboration, and so the two have come together once more for the release of their UA TH Snake Trail LX chukka in “Black/Moonstruck” and “Marshmallow.”
The mid-cut chukka sneaker taps into Vans’ rich heritage and oozes a SoCal aesthetic. For example, the “Black/Moonstruck” pair delivers a more skate-orientated look with its darker choice of colors, while the iconic “Marshmallow” hue offers something better suited to the beach.
Both pairs are made from premium suede and feature a traditional canvas underlay, and come fitted with other luxury elements such as a full leather lining, meticulous stitching, and the much-favored high foxing tape finish. Around the midsole, Taka Hayashi and Vans Vault have added the phrase “Have a Vantastic Trip!!!” in white text against black or orange, respectively.
Rounding out the pairs are a set of graphic laces that sport the classic Vans “V” emblem all over them, as well as circle-embroidered heel tab and a dual-branded license plate which is finished in either “Moonstruck” or orange.
Take a look at the Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault UA TH Snake Trail LX “Have a Vantastic Trip!!!” pack in the gallery above, and pick up both pairs now from retailers such as END., where they are priced at $105 USD a pair.
