Skate label Supreme is known to throw out a few expletives on their graphic, but would you expect any different? This Thursday, in collaboration with Vans, Supreme will release their “Fuck ’em” capsule of footwear, featuring the Vans SK8-HI Womens and Era silhouettes. Black and red serve as the basis of colors for this Pack, with two different renditions for each model being available upon release.
The Vans SK8-HI Mens Decon is certainly enjoying its current place among the California brand’s most popular silhouettes. A modified take on the timeless Vans SK8-HI Best Price that boasts a lateral zipper and alternate detailing on both the heel and midsole, the Decon is perfectly on-trend with its stripped-back, intentionally imperfect look. It’s now hit the market in a brand-new colorway that’s truly a tale of two shoes: the lateral side is all business with a stark black suede, while the medial side offers more whimsical stylings, featuring a black/grey checkerboard print on the upper and a small touch of black/white checkerboard print on the midsole. Alternating lace loops, an upside-down heel piece, and a re-positioned red heel badge that’s been moved to the midfoot then complete the modified look.
Legendary Japanese brand Mastermind and Vans have enjoyed a fruitful long-term partnership. Known for their black-and-white colorblocking/signature skull-and-crossbones motif, Mastermind has lent their instantly recognizable touch to seemingly every silhouette in the extensive tome of Vans classics. Now, the two are joining forces again for a new take on the beloved Vans SK8-HI Buy Online. The shoe’s standard upper color scheme remains intact, but Mastermind’s added a plentiful helping of alternate details — as both the lateral and medial sides are swathed in an all-over skull print, and the heel features a zipper for easy on/easy off. The lower half adds further to the two-tone contrast, with a stark white toe cap arriving in front of a black midsole that boasts embossed Mastermind text detailing. A white outsole then arrives to complete the look.
The Vans SK8-HI For Sale utilizes suede and canvas uppers to showcase the Led Zeppelin album art printed with silver metallic hits on the quarter panel. The Sk8-Hi is complete with a black leather Sidestripe, black tonal laces and a tonal alphabet printed sidewall. Led Zeppelin fans can unveil each of the band member’s symbols on the woven label on the internal tongue. The Vans Era features the band member’s individual symbols arranged across a premium leather construction with white tonal Led Zeppelin and corresponding symbols printed on the sidewall.
