UPDATE: The Vans Sk8-Hi has earned its place among the classics, so it’s only right to dress it in one of the sneaker game’s traditional colourways, white and gum. The smooth leather upper on top of that thick slab of gummed-up goodness is a winning combo. The Vans Sk8-Hi Reissue Zip ‘White/Gum’ is available now from select stockists, including Feature.
Vans give an iconic skate staple a luxurious makeover. The Sk8-Hi Reissue Zip Gum pack sees the high-top drop in an all leather upper, matched with a natural gum sole and a sturdy zip running the length of the heel for ease of entry. Plusher than your average canvas and suede SK8-Hi; the pack will include a choice of tonal makeups including white, navy and black all matched with a complementary pull-tab.
