For Active’s “Drop Sneakers Not Bombs” 2008 campaign, Vans and artist Taka Hayashi have been brought together. The two will release the Half Cab and J-Lay Mid. The Half Cab consists of a black leather upper while the J-Lay Mid features a brown upper. With each model, Taka Hayashi’s designs can be seen, they don’t look traditional, but the Drop Sneakers Not Bombs campaign usually features unique sneakers. Release is scheduled for November.
