Little more than a month ago we saw a collaboration from Blends and Vans when the two SoCal footwear icons served up a Sk8-Hi tribute to Snoopy and the gang. They're already back at it – and teaming up with Orange County's Born Free motorcycle show – for a very different take on the high-cut silhouette.
A follow-up to the trio's Old Skool colab from 2016, this fuel-injected Sk8-Hi retains the red, white and blue Jazz Stripe of its predecessor as well as its translucent checkerboard outsole, though the troika have opted for a rich blue canvas and suede upper this time around. Produced by Vans' Vault division, you can expect top-tier quality from this colab.
The Blends x Born Free x Vans Vault Sk8-Hi LX will be available exclusively at Born Free 9, from June 24 to June 25. An allocation will also be available online through Blends' webshop on June 27 at 9am PST.
