I love the sk8-hi and old skool equally. Sometimes you wanna rock a high top, sometimes you don't. Thankfully Vans knows how to do vintage without yellow cat piss midsoles.

Even more than something like the Authentic and Era, whose plimsoll style is fairly ubiquitous, the 1977-born Off the Wall lowtop pictured above has a particularly ‘vintage’ feel. Vans Old Skool might be the most appropriate name in the skate sneaker world, this toe-capped lowtop about to release a new mix of blue suede and canvas plus a bit of gold on the Jazz stripe it introduced some thirty-five years ago. Stick with Sneaker News for word on US availability and let us know whether it was the Old Skool or Sk8-Hi that was Vans’ best ’77.
