Vans “Mexican Blanket” Slip-On & Sk8 Hi

Not too long ago we saw the adidas Originals line draw from the rich African heritage and design a set of sneakers sure to remind many people of the different cultures on that continent. Now, it is Vans searching for cultural influence. The pair of Vans Slip-On’s and Sk8 Hi’s pictured here are part of a “Mexican Blanket” collection reportedly dropping during the 2009 holiday season at certain Vans retailers. The same pattern that envelopes this pair of Slip-On’s can be seen on the middle and back of the Sk8 Hi’s, leaving more room towards the front for a purple suede upper with red shoe laces. Check in with several Vans retailers as different ones have already begun to receive this collection and are ready for sale.
