The rumors have been flying around for months now, and we now have the official release info for the next installment in the Vault x Blends “Bones” collection.  This time, they went back to their initial model, the Sk8-Hi Zip LX, but this time in a Chili Pepper Red colorway with Black accents.  We were anticipating an all-white colorway, as that was the photos that were initially leaked, and we always knew of a rumored red pair, but we thought they were going to go Right, with a seemingly typical all-red colorway, and in Blends fashion, they went Left with a timeless Red/Black color combination.  Some of you might be disappointed with that, but years from now, you’ll be happy that they bucked the trend.  Always choose timeless over trendy.  Always.  With that said, I hope you’re excited about these, like we always are.  Blends once again comes through with the heat.  The only question now is, will these be a part of your top 10 of 2014?

 

Words via Blends:

“Following the 2013 release of our Black SK8 Hi, and our Old Skool earlier this year we at Blends have teamed up once again with Vans Vault for a special edition Vans Vault SK8 Hi in a new Vans color – Chili Pepper. This is once again a premium take on the Iconic OG Sk8 Hi with a new never before used extra supple buttery leather. The shoe will once again feature a zippered closure at the heel and a bone-patterned Jazz Stripe branding across the upper.
