The new Vans ArcAd (Archive Advancement) line of premium collaborations within the world of core skate introduces their next project, which pairs longtime Vans collaborator Taka Hayashi with Santa Cruz Skateboards. The revered Vans Vault designer takes inspiration from Santa Cruz’s rich history in the skateboard culture and their iconic “Skateboarding Is Not A Crime” motto for special editions of the Old Skool Pro ArcAd and Chukka Pro ArcAd. Hayashi blends his usual meticulous attention to craftsmanship and detail with Santa Cruz’s heritage for each shoe, featuring the Old Skool in a premium leather and suede build in dark pink and the Chukka in grey suede, each with black graphic-printed midsoles and duel logos on the tongues.
Available only at select Vans Pro Skate accounts worldwide on October 28th, the Vans ArcAd x Santa Cruz x TH capsule is limited to 600 individually numbered pairs for each model.
