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.
