Christian Hosoi’s humble Twitter tagline “The right place at the right time,” is reflected in the subtle excellence of his latest Vans collab.  The Vans Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro Hosoi is rendered in a rich royal blue suede with white Jazz Stripe.  Sounds like a simple combination, and it is elegant, but the real story takes place when you notice the rising sun perforations across the entire side.  It’s a design that literally demands a closer look, and you can take stock of the detail in more images below before buying at shops like Concepts.

Christian Hosoi is back with another classic hightop collaboration with the brand he’s endorsed for well over half his life.  Transworld’s 4th most influential skater of all time comes through once again with the Vans Sk8-Hi, this time presented in the Notchback variation we see from time to time.  The most intriguing part of this two-toned suede duo is the perforation pattern, which at first glance appears to be random or maybe one of today’s many camo looks.  But a closer examination reveals a rising sun design, a compliment to the tongue tags that make reference to his Japanese ancestry.  Have a look at the subtle complexity of these simple colorups after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for updates on their projected midsummer release.

Should skateboarding historians count Christian Hosoi among the skaters whose footwear preferences were strongly influenced by Air Jordans?  If you were to look over Hosoi’s collaborations with Vans on the Legends Pack, you’d see him rely on black and red and/or black and royal blue colorways, both of which were prominently featured on the original Air Jordan 1 he’s depicted wearing in countless classic photos.  All of this MJ-infusion in the past is what makes Hosoi’s Vans  SK8-His so unique despite their simple designs.  Navy/white and tonal black getups seem far enough out of the Christ Air originator’s expected range that they’re a nice surprise for the holiday season, and you’ll find them soon at select Off the Wall retailers.  via FNG
