Taka Hayashi is to Vans what Raf Simons is to adidas. If a truck leaves with something exclusive from the California factory, it's probably something by Taka. Tens of collaborations with this Japanese designer always have the same foundation which is the Vault by Vans silhouettes characteristic with the premium quality. This is the best thing you can get from Vans created by someone who loves Vans as much as you do.
It all began in 1978, when Paul Van Doren wanted to create a similar model to the iconic #36, known today as Vans Old Skool. His goal was to design a functional and high-top shoe that will suit all skateboarders and that will provide a whole new point of view. He succeeded and introduced a new model #38, known as Vans Sk8-Hi, which celebrates its 40th birthday this year! Of course he didn´t forget the legendary sidestripe. Celebrate with us and we´ll leave it to you to pick your style.
Upper - Leather - is perhaps the best material for the production of footwear - maintains its shape, it is breathable and the list of its positive properties is far from ending.
Sole - Rubber - a material that is very easy to maintain and you will appreciate it especially in rainy weather.
