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.
