Much like many of the other major sneaker brands, Vans Vault has flirted with the idea of spongy silione soles, only to limit their use to a few select pairs. But with the success of Taka Hayashi’s Derby lowtops last year leading to a few more crepe bottoms from him this year, there was enough momentum to bring along this new duo of Vans Vault Sk8-Hi Boat Crepe hightops. The combination of crepe texture on the sole with a moccassin toe offers a strong connection to the Clarks Originals Wallabee, but even with the ‘Boat’ designation, these are all Sk8.
