Christian Hosoi x Vans Bash Vulc – Black + Royal Blue
Legendary skater Christian Hosoi continues to extend his influence long after his days dominating the halfpipe are done. The Christian Hosoi x Vans Bash Vulc is ready to go in two new tonal colorways that make the most of this WTAPS-designed silhouette in a year when tonal=high fashion. Pairs in black or royal blue each manage some depth of each shade by contrasting various leathers and suede atop Vans’ signature vulcanized waffle sole, but the coolest part might be the multicolored sockliner that hearkens back to Hosoi’s mid ’80s heyday. Have a look at both pairs after the jump and look for these at select Off the Wall retailers now; they just hit Japan’s Beams and are also available on eBay.
