The Vans Knu Skool debuted in 1998 as an answer to the time’s growing trend of chunky and puffy designs within the world of skate shoes. Revived in 2015 by Vans Japan, the silhouette hasn’t enjoyed the same fanfare it once did since its heyday, but Sneakersnstuff (SNS) is looking to change that.
No stranger to the Vault by Vans family, SNS’ latest take on the California institution’s catalog sees a muted color scheme placed on the bold Knu Skool. As was the case in the 1990s, the sneaker features a series of oversized components across the upper. The European retailer utilizes premium hairy suede material throughout the top-half, covering the upper in a dark brown. Profile sidestripes opt for a contrasting blue, while vulcanized midsoles revert to a gum brown finish.
Enjoy official photos of the pair ahead, and expect a release via the SNS app soon.
