Hong Kong streetwear label MADNESS have linked up with Vans for double dose of vulcanised collaboration. Both the Sk8-Hi and Sk8-Mid have been injected with clean colourways and creative detailing. The Sk8-Hi features a tonal grey suede upper, white midsole and zip at the heel for easy access. Also sporting suede construction, the Sk8-Mid features a two-tone upper of black and ‘Prussian Blue’, with a black midsole and gusseted tongue, making this a laces optional affair. Both pairs feature the words ‘all work and no play makes you mad’ on the midsole – a sly reference to The Shining.
Both pairs will be available February 11, exclusively through MADNESS’ Beijing location and webshop. A wider release will follow on February 18 through selected Vans stores in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Japan and Taiwan.
