Vault by Vans x Taka Hayashi ‘Sk8 Paradise’ Pack

Vault-by-Vans-Taka-Hayashi-Sk8-Paradise-Pack-05Continuing their long and established collaboration efforts, Vans, and renowned artist, footwear and graphic designer, Taka Hayashi present their newest project for AW14.

Using the intricate patterns and shapes found in Mexican embroidery as inspiration, Hayashi’s ‘Sk8 Paradise’ pack displays a unique take on two classic Vans Vault Silhouettes; the OG Sk8-Hi LX and OG Authentic LX. Initially the eye is drawn to the bold graphic pattern, which is hand drawn by Hayashi and built up from skeletons, skateboards and floral accents. There’s also quality and substance behind the patterns with a mix of premium leather and suede constructing the uppers, as you would expect from the Vans Vault series.

Available from END. now.
