Taka Hayashi’s indelible mark on Vans silhouettes and tireless effort to challenge conventions of footwear design can be felt in each piece he creates. Hayashi continues to inject new life into timeless forms with his unique design approach and articulate craftsmanship. For his ninth installment of his signature line, Taka introduces the TH 008 LX to the Vault by Vans line-up.
The TH 008 LX builds on the traditional English dress shoe profile with sneaker-styled paneling and premium materials. Luxurious suede composes the Glazed Ginger edition of the TH 008 LX as oiled nubuck outfits a second colorway in Dark Navy. Each set of uppers is built atop the Vibram® Cristy outsole and is further refined with intricate embroidery and perforation detailing. The Vault by Vans x Taka Hayashi TH 008 LX will arrive at premier Vault retailers next month. Read on to check out some detailed shots at what’s to come and be sure to drop us a line in the comments section below.
