As summer turns up the heat on the Northern Hemisphere, many brands are increasing the breathability of their sneakers by adding breezy mesh and other light-weight materials. Not Vans; they’ve added extra airflow to two classic silhouettes, the Sk8-Hi Decon and the Slip-On, with precise laser cuts. Each sneaker sports an upper made from premium leather with an array of geometric holes or filigree patterns – it’s almost as if they’ve been munched on by a gifted caterpillar. Providing balance to the wild decoration, the pack is available in a selection of subdued tonal colourways including black, white and green.
The Cut-Out pack is available from Vans now.
