After the late June release of deconstructed takes on both the Vans Sk8-Hi and Vans Slip-On, the California-based brand is bringing a similar stripped-down take to another one of their classic skate shoes: the Highland. The throwback silhouette arrives in a classic black/white colorway, complete with a white midsole and gum outsole, but that’s where the simplicity ends. The shoe then goes on to offer an abundance of unique deconstructed details, from a white and blue “Off The Wall” ribbon that drapes over the quarter panel to a checkerboard pattern that wraps around the heel before giving way to a “No Minimum” hit on the lateral side. The tongue is also turned inside-out, displaying the inner tab and manufacturing information for another rough-hewn touch of flair. If you’re a fan of this shoe’s abstract look, pairs are available now from authorized Vans stockists like Rock City Kicks for $85 USD.
