Vans Vault has once again teamed up with English bike saddle maker Brooks, to create this amazing capsule collection, including two shoes, a bike saddle, and a shoulder bag.  This time, they’ve brought on Taka Hayashi to add his stylings to the collection, featuring his intricate laser-etched patterns throughout the premium leather of each piece.  The shoes chosen for this release, are the OG Sk8-Hi LX, and OG Classic Slip-On LX, and are wrapped in a mixture of brown and black tanned leather.  The soles are a tonal white/marshmallow colorway, and feature a few color accents on the waffle gum sole.  Minimal Taka Hayashi branding can be seen on the footbed as well as the tongues.  There’s also a few limited accessories available separately, one being a Brooks Swift saddle, and a Brooks Barbican Shoulder Bag.  Two absolutely stunning pieces.  There’s also a custom drawer box and dustbag to finish the shoes off nicely.  Look for these to drop at your local Vault dealer this coming weekend like Sole Classics in Columbus, Ohio, on Saturday December 3rd.  Pricing is $150 for the Sk8-Hi and $120 for the Slip-On.
