The Vans Sk8-Hi is a shoe that brings with it a distinct feel of California style, a throwback to the early days of skateboarding. In this release California’s neighbor to the north jumps in on the fun, with Portland, Oregon based Holden teaming up with Vans on Sk8-Hi in a somber black colorway dressed up in great premium materials. The buttery leather on these has a vaguely vintage feel and the black waxed laces help out the serious look of this Vans release. Hit the jump for a closerl look at the Vans x Holden collaboration and stay tuned for more info.
