Californian lovers of bikes and good times, Blends, have teamed up with Vans once more to drop the sixth hit in their ‘Bone Jazz’ series. The stripped back Sk8-Hi Deconstruct gets made up in smooth premium black cowhide. The slimmed down version of the classic silhouette has its typical padded cuff replaced with contrasting white stitching that trace out the ghosts of panels past. Swathed in darkness, the iconic Jazz Stripe is constructed from bones like a strange articulated limb. Finished with a clean white outsole and cobranded custom sockliners, the colab stands as example of how good a simple silhouette with premium materials can be. Insta-classic.
The Blends x Vans Vault Sk8-Hi Decon LX is available from Blends on October 1.
