Following up on its ’90s tech-inspired collaboration from 2020, Jerry Hsu‘s Sci-Fi Fantasy is leaping back into the sneaker ring to reunite with Vans Skateboarding for a second initiative. This time around, the skater and photographer elected to rework the Skate Half Cab ’92 VCU and Skate Sid VCU models with luxe materials and bold accents.

Starting out with the Skate Half Cab ’92 VCU, the kicks are anchored by their Eden green suede upper overlays that are attached to the toe boxes and quarter panels. Chinese letters are another primary design element of the kicks as they are printed in tonal fashion across the collars and mid-foot windows, as well as the heels in a bold, flame-y orange tone. Extra hits arrive by way of exposed white stitchings that outline each of the base layer’s panels.

The Skate Sid VCU pair in this assemblage is constructed with a more elevated presentation. Uppers are fitted with stark black cracked leather which also is accessorized with angelic stitchings. Flying V insignias that rest on the mid-foot along with the “Vans Sci-Fi” co-branding on the tongues each stand out with more fiery essence as well.

Select Vans Skateboarding retailers are set to drop this collection on December 8, 2022.

Elsewhere in footwear, NEEDLES’ Vault by Vans collab has been announced.
