Featuring sturdy suede and canvas uppers that pay homage to the house’s first high-top, the Sk8-Hi shoe is available in a variety of classic and whimsical colorways. These lace-up shoes also feature a re-enforced toe, padded collars for support, and signature rubber waffle outsoles. Vans’ legendary high top sneaker with Sidestripe.
