Amsterdam's Patta has churned out some of the sneaker world's more coveted releases in memory. Their previous collaborations with Vans gave us the Mean Eyed Cat Old Skools which shot to the top of collector's lists (as well as in price) almost immediately. For the holiday season, Patta set their sights on the classic Sk8 Hi.
Both pairs arrive with classic tonal suede and canvas color blocking in langoustine (reddish orange) and hydro (blue). Each also sits atop an all black foxing with contrasting white stripe. Previous design choices focused on large Patta branding emblazoned in contrasting text along the quarters, this one opts for Patta script along the foxing. Team Patta laces and a matching "P" lace locks finish off the silos. The colorways are nice choices for the cooler months and will fit into your shorter-days rotation nicely.
The Vans x Patta Sk8 Hi collection is available now from Patta brick and mortars in Amsterdam and London. Additional release at Patta.nl will be held Monday, December 4th.
