Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault TH Cornice LX

February 13th, 2013 by | No comments

taka hayashi x vans vault th cornice lx Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault TH Cornice LX

Taka Hayashi’s latest work for Vans Vault is the epitome of his best: old school Off the Wall design language mixed up with some native flavor.  The new Vans Vault TH Cornice LX is the latest Vans chukka silhouette, featuring moccasin toe construction and a patterned ankle collar reminiscent of the tribal look intimately connected with this capsule.  Premium suedes and a bit of leather give these a classy look, but there’s still a double-stitched ollie area right above the classic Vans waffle sole if you have the occasion to shred.  Check out Tortoise Shell and Puce colorways after the jump so you can decide which to grab at select retailers like The General.

taka hayashi x vans vault spring 2013 footwear Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault   Spring 2013 Footwear

Taka Hayashi is known to regularly switch things up, and here we have two new models and one significant transformation.  Following up on two crepe-soled pairs about a year ago, the Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault Engineer Boot LX tightens up and switches to a Vibram sole.  It’s accompanied by the Lace to Toe LX lowtop with the same comfy bottoms, and also connected to the vulc-soled moc-toe Cornice LX chukka.  Stick with Sneaker News for that plus release info; these premium Horween Leather releases should be out at Vans Vault retailers shortly.

Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault Revere Hi “Palm Leaf”

January 31st, 2013 by | 1 comment

taka hayashi x vans vault revere hi palm leaf Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault Revere Hi Palm Leaf

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.

vans vault taka hayashi sp12 summary Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault   Spring 2012

The Vans range has been riding the line between luxurious drops and more street level skate sneakers with increasing ease as of late. Certainly falling into the category of luxurious is the ongoing partnership with Taka Hayashi, who has been continuously pushing the boundaries of what a pair of Vans should look like. For instance: when was the last time you saw crepe soles on a Vans silhouette? His upcoming pieces from the Vans Vault Spring 2012 collection all feature the squishy crepe treatment on bottom, from the Oxford-looking design of the Sierra Trek LX in both the high and low variants, to the strapped up leather pairs of the Engineer Boot LX. Hit the jump for the full shots of the latest from the Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault collaboration and let us know what you think in the comments below. via FNG

We hadn’t heard all that much of his plans after the spring 2011 collection dropped, so it’s always good news to learn of more new releases from the Taka Hayashi for Vans Vault.  The latest is a slight variation on one of those early ’11 drops, itself a variant of one of Off the Wall’s greatest hits.  The Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault Sk8-Hi immediately stands out even compared to the trio of Sk8s he dropped earlier this year thanks to an unprecedented leather wrap on the classic vulcanized waffle sole that gives this tonal brown combination of suede and leather a premium look that’s gotta be one of the best designs we’ve seen all in 2011 from any Vans collaborator.  Click through to see that and a host of additional premium touches and look for these now at select Vans Vault stockists.  via ST
