Vans continues to honor the legacy of the Sk8-Hi during its golden anniversary year by releasing an updated selection of seasonal styles for men and women. The Sk8-Hi takes on new materials in an array of colorways adding to the heritage of the iconic hi-top style.

With a focus on premium material offerings, the men’s Sk8-Hi assortment includes a premium leather Sk8-Hi Reissue using off-white leather uppers outfitted with a leather Sidestripe and tongue label accents. Constructed using veggie tan uppers, the latest Sk8-Hi Reissue uses natural, full-grain leather in a tan colorway for a monochromatic take on Vans’ original hi-top silhouette. The Sk8-Hi Reissue is finished with Vansguard-treated canvas uppers to help propel water and dirt.

The women’s Sk8-Hi assortment kicks off with a deluxe iteration of the Sk8-Hi Slim Zip. The hi-top utilizes embossed leather uppers to mimic python skin to add an element of texture. The Sk8-Hi Slim is revamped to include a holographic leather silhouette that when in the sun, gives off a prismatic effect. In time for the holiday season, Vans will release a holiday-themed Sk8-Hi Reissue inspired by seasonal knit sweaters but with its own Vans twist.

New iterations of the Sk8-Hi begin releasing this October in Vans retail stores and on all through the holiday season.
