New year, new kicks from all the brands you’ve come to know and love. We’re seeing the Spring 2012s from basically everybody now that the holiday shopping season has wrapped, and Vans has come through with a few new look from some of their best loved heritage designs. We’ll start with one of Off the Wall’s most iconic silhouettes, the Vans Sk8-Hi, this navy suede pair accented by white and augmented iwth a Notchback ankle collar as designated in its formal name. Elsewhere in the high-cut suede classic department is two new Half Cabs in a Washington Redskins duo of monochromatic getups. They’re rivaled in simplicity by a black leather Zapato del Barco, but that shoe’s midtop Chukka rendition adds some extra contrast with a two-material upper setup. One pair of the lowtop Chukka with a patterned side panel closes out this set along with two new Ludlow lowtops from the OTW collection, and all of these are available at select Vans shops like Primitive.
