Hockey and Vans have prepped pro skater Andrew Allen‘s Authentic Hi in two new colorways: bright red and crisp white. A follow-up to Allen’s debut Authentic Hi from April 2020, this new duo offers more than just cosmetic makeovers for Allen’s signature sneaker — it also boasts brand-new Vans skateboarding tech that can stand up to Allen’s demanding on-board style.

Each upper is crafted of classic canvas, assembled on a new last for a better fit and feel. Under this contrast-stitched canvas build, there’s a Duracap underlay that’s built to withstand the withering effects of a skateboard’s griptape. It’s built with a new production method that elimates “hot spots” where heat and friction build up over the course of a skate session. There’s also a rubber ollie pad on the lateral forefoot, plus molded heel counters and tongue straps to lock the wearer’s foot in place.

Branding is largely kept to a minimum, but Hockey’s signature rabid dog is embroidered on each shoe’s lateral collar and Allen’s name is present on the inner collar. Vans hits arrive via a small checkerboard midfoot tag and a “shatter” heel badge for another callout to Hockey’s graphics. Midsoles and outsoles may look simple but are loaded with tech. Two-part foxing on the midsole enhances durability, Vans’ new Sick Stick rubber compound guarantees great grip and PopCush footbeds return energy without bottoming out.

Andrew Allen’s Hockey x Vans Authentic Hi is available now via the Fucking Awesome webstore, and will release at Vans Skate retailers like The Berrics Canteen on August 19. Each pair’s MSRP is set at $65 USD.
