taka hayashi vans vault chukka lx th july 2012 Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault Chukka LX TH

Longtime Vans collaborator Taka Hayashi has a few new tricks up his sleeves for fall, the first of which is a unique twist on an established Off the Wall favorite.  The Vans Vault Chukka LX TH applies the Japanese designer’s premium handcrafted feel to th familiar midtop Chukka Boot silhouette, adding (what looks to be) an asymmetrical leather mudguard and heel, while swapping out the iconic Waffle sole for a lower profile base like the ones he used on his own Akat.  Monochromatic styles in black, brown and blue are available now at Vans Vault retailers, so click through for more and let us know which pair(s) you’ll pick up.  via FNG

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

Taka Hayashi expertly utilized Pendleton wool on a couple of his Vans Vault collaborations last winter.  For 2011, the third party material suppliers are known for a similar level of quality, if by a smaller group of fans.  But that number will surely grow as soon as you lay eyes upon the Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault Sk8-Hi and Derby cast in leathers, suedes and canvases from leather handcrafters BILLYKIRK.  Both models come in two toned colorways, each fairly neutral in its own right, and the Sk8s add a dual-layered leather wrapped sole to match the premium feel of the Derby’s crepe bottoms.  Click through for closer views of both and grab yours now at top-tier Vans retailers like Hot Rod.
