Taka Hayashi steps up to the heel plate for his ninth release of Vans sneaks, pulling out some signature style prints on the TH Half Cab LX and TH Court Hi LX. The former gets a Javanese ‘batik’ pattern inspired by late 80s and early 90s skateboard fashion; it’s not as weird as it sounds and actually comes out looking tight and uncluttered. Meanwhile the sky-reaching TH Court Hi LX pulls in deluxe suede and canvas on the upper, a padding free ankle wrap for those shredders, like Chima Ferguson, who like to feel close to the elements, and is doused in Hawaiian prints with birds and leaves and other beautiful things, like badass skulls. The Vault by Vans x Taka Hayashi TH Half Cab LX and TH Court Hi LX arrive this September at select Vault retailers. Pics via Vault by Vans.
