Coming just a couple of weeks after the Spring reopening of Supreme, the SoHo staple has unveiled their first collaboration of 2017 with the Pro Skate wing of Vans.
Vans Skate drops a new wave of updated Sk8 Mids in classic colorways and Pro Classics tech.
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.
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.
OVERVIEW Part of the Vans x Antihero Collaboration, the Antihero Sk8-Mid Pro, a midtop take on the legendary high top and updated for enhanced performance, features a premium suede upper with original sidestripe, UltraCush HD Sockliners for advanced cushioning, and Duracap™ Toe Bumper and Upper Ollie Underlays for increased durability and extra reinforcement where needed most. This Pro Classic most definitely has Vans Original Rubber Waffle Outsole for increased support and stability.
The Antihero x Vans Sk8 Mid Pro is available at core skate shops around the globe now.
Last seen in spring 2014, the Taka Hayashi Sk8-Mid LX resurfaces in two color-ups: "Khaki" and "New Navy ," featuring the intricately stitched Cross Pattern on the medial and lateral sides of each shoe. This re-imagining of the Vans Sk8-Mid is further detailed with premier suede materials, leather Sidestripe overlays, rawhide lacing and raised toe box foxing.
The two new colorways of the Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault Sk8-Mid LX are available now at select Vans Vault retailers.

A favorite among skaters and Waffleheads a like, the Sk8 Mid finally returns to Supreme. We can't stop staring at those olive pairs.
Vans Classics line is transitioning to the warmer months with updated Spring stylings of the Sk8 Mid, Era, and Slip-On. All three arrive with blue pinstriped uppers while the sk8 mid boasts a white jazz stripe with black suede toe box and heel counter.
