Vans is currently celebrating their 50th anniversary, and expect them to continue the celebration all year-long. The latest way to celebrate is by coming together with JD Sports to release an exclusive collection of classic models in tonal offerings. Consisting to the Vans Old Skool and Vans Sk8-Hi, let’s take a closer look.

The Old Skool comes dressed either a blue or red upper constructed out of canvas and leather materials. A white side stripe breaks up the tonal look of the shoe, while the checkerboard lining adds another dimension to it. A pair of tonal laces and a white vulcanized sole unit with tonal piping completes the aesthetics of the shoe. Not pictured is the Vans Sk8-High which also shares the same features as the Old Skool just in high-top form. Available now exclusively as JD stores and on their online store, the Old Skool will sell for around $83 and the Sk8-Hi for close to $87. Cop or drop? Let us know in the comments below.


Author’s Take

It’s an exclusive colorway for the store. Nothing really out of the ordinary, but it’s a solid looking shoe overall.
