Taka Hayashi‘s work for Vans Vault tends toward the luxurious upper end of the market. His latest release is self-evidently premium from head to toe, or Lace to Toe, as the case may be. The Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault Lace to Toe LX is a lowtop inspired by classic paratrooper boots, constructed in a rich tumbled Horween leather that looks like one of those items you end up loving more and more as they add character with age. Finished with the Vibram Christy Morflex sole that combines vintage American rugged looks with lightweight anti-abrasion technology, the Lace to Toe pictured above will be joined by two additional colorways at select retailers next month, and is further depicted after the jump below.
