Taka Hayashi’s partnership with Vans Vault over the years has been typified by brand new designs or dramatic alterations to established favorites. The latest is indeed a fresh silo, but pulls no punches when it comes to celebrating Off the Wall’s rich legacy. The Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault TH Revere Hi LX reads like a remixed Sk8-Hi (a model that judging by earlier collaborations, Taka no doubt reveres), but a new heel and the fattest laces we’ve seen on a vulc-soled Vans release are obvious new additions. Balancing out the novelty is that iconic OG Palm Leaf print reissued last summer, and you can see more of this unique mix of old and new for spring 2013 after the jump.
