Today we have three new releases from a brand that we rarely talk about. Vans were left in the dark with their predictable designs and colorways when tyrants like Supra and Radii shoes where introduced into the market. Supra shoes have some of the most modern, stylish, comfortable and popular shoes available and they forced brands like “Vans” to re-think their whole approach which they did and they have finally begun to release, well, Kick-Ass-Kicks!!
Vans Sk8-Hi and Authentic Lo Pro “Zebra Pack” Spring 2011:
Here is the first of the three new releases, both of these models feature zebra stripes all over their canvas uppers but instead of black and white, the stripes are exhibited in black on black. Aside from the stripes, the Vans Sk8-Hi also uses plain black canvas on the eye rows and back heel while textured leather works on the strip situated on the side panels. These will be released soon.
