Taka Hayashi and Vans Remix the Classic Checkerboard

Date: November 26 2018

By: Sebastian Bugeja-Drinkell


After collaborating almost 20 times, Vans and Taka Hayashi have teamed up once again. This time the dynamic duo have remixed two of Vans' most iconic silhouettes: the Sk8-Hi and the Slip-On. Both of these models feature a premium woven suede upper with a custom checkerboard print. Taka Hayashi puts his touches on the iconic print by enlarging each individual square. A darker sole unit features the iconic branding present on all of their shared work.

Both of these Vans are available right now at retailers like FootShop
