Sk8 Mid


Vans Vault OG Sk8 Mid LX "Italian Weave"

This is a pleasant surprise. Dropping alongside the animal print pack from Vault are three OG Sk8 Mid models with italian weave side panels. Three colorways will be available: marshmallow, dress blue, and black. All three are well-balanced with a tonal suede and stripeless foxed midsole. The Sk8 Mid is a well loved model and we feel like Vans doesn't release enough of them. It's great to see an OG Sk8 Mid LX. 

The Vans Vault OG Sk8 Mid LX "Italian Weave" are available now from Proper. Retail is $100. Check your local Vault retailer for availability. 


Pabst Blue Ribbon x Vans Sk8 Mid

Last year, Milwaukee's Pabst Blue Ribbon partnered with Vans and ran a scavenger contest around different cities in the US. They hid the Vans in cities throughout the country and then posted hints on their Twitter page on where to find them. This was very popular and engaged thousands of fans everywhere. In addition to the real-life scavenger hunt, they also hid various pairs throughout their website for people to find. They have rebooted the online scavenger hunt with the new Sk8 Mid. 

This year, they are offering everybody a chance to get them without hunting. From now until Labor Day, if you spend $150 in the official store, you will be able to select a pair of the limited edition collaboration for free. 

If the other gear isn't to your taste, they will be hiding 50 pairs of the collaboration throughout from September 4th through the 25th.

The Pabst Blue Ribbon x Vans Sk8 Mid is available now from the Pabst Blue Ribbon online shop with the purchase of $150.
