The VANS SK8-HI has been one of the first sneakers ever Vans designed and ultimately released. Timeless design combined with latest technology and hard-earned respect in the skating scene labels the Sk8-Hi as a must-have!

After successful collaborations with Disney – from Mickey Mouse to Star Wars motives printed on the upper – Vans put their heads together with Nintendo, the absolute all-time gaming champion. More or less. Starting off the June in brilliant fashion, they present the VANS X NINTENDO collection! To provide old school gamers with a fitting sneaker, Vans release the VANS SK8-HI REISSUE CONTROLLER featuring Nintendo NES controllers. When the gaming console hit the market around 30 years ago, the foundation of gaming was laid. Mobile cases, jewelry and purses aside, a sneaker based on the console is long due. The canvas upper has been decorated with the NES controller print, leaving the suede part untouched.

Brand information: vans

In 1966 Jim van Doren, Gordy Lee and Serge D''Elia founded the Van Doren Rubber Company. In a shop next to the factory they sold the Hi-Top (also Sk8-Hi). It was the first sneaker which was made specifically for skateboarding. Ten years later they rolled out the Hi-Top in two colors (red-blue) for the first time. The shoe was designed by skateboard-legends Stacy Peralta and Tony Alva. Since then the rise of Vans was unstoppable. To this day Vans are not only an integral part of the skateboarding-scene. A lot of bands like Bad Religion or The Hives are also crazy about Vans.
