Recently, we’ve gotten some good looks at how the Vans team has drawn from and applied certain cultural influences to its shoe line. Here’s some more. After last year’s successful collaboration between Vans and Japan’s FLAUGE, the Deconstruct Vans Sk8-Hi returns in burgundy, black, and grey. As one might be able to deduce from the sneaker model’s nickname, the Vans Sk8-Hi Deconstruct was freed of padding to result in a more lightweight frame and has the Vans stripe logo only embroidered in the same color as the upper to give a “one piece” feel to it. What are your thoughts on the Vans Sk8-Hi Deconstruct?
