Following their collaboration on the Classic Slip-On and Old Skool silhouettes, Russian designer, Gosha Rubchinskiy and Vans team up yet again to reinterpret the iconic Sk8-Hi.

This special edition Gosha Rubchinskiy x Vans Sk8-Hi essentially stays true to its original makeup but enhanced with premium flair through the application of suede replacing the standard canvas upper. Contrasting White stitches outline the Vans stripe logo to further pronounce its design, while rubber reinforcements on the toe box and vulcanized sole unit round out its simplistic build.

Offered in classic shades of Off-White/Black and Black/White, look for the Gosha Rubchinskiy x Vans Sk8-Hi at select Vans retailers starting tomorrow, August 1st.

I’m all for simple and minimal designs and this variation of the Sk8-Hi is just my type of style.
