The prize for the most delectable sneaker colab on the internet today goes Shanghai’s FLY store for this Vans Sk8-Hi. The store is owned by revered skater Jeff Han, who has shifted his attention from half pipes to piped icing.
A mainstay of Shanghai desserts, the ruby cake is a traditional treat. It’s made from layered lemon sponge and white cream, and is decorated with a shiny cherry on the top – ingredients which are reflected in tasty detail on this Sk8-Hi. The upper receives a generous portion of white leather, which is embossed on the heel with the store’s name. A yellow tinged midsole wraps around the lower of the shoe, and the Vans logo on the tongue acts as the cherry on top. If that wasn’t already decadent enough, some of the shoes will even come in a clear cake box wrapped in a striped band.
The FLY x Vans Sk8 Hi ‘Ruby Cake’ is available now from FLY store, with more being stocked at Undefeated and Bodega shortly.
