Words via END:

“Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy launches another collaboration with fellow skateboarding brand Vans. After re-working an old-school slip on sneaker in 2014, the two have mashed-up their designs once again to create the Sk8-Hi for A/W’15.

The Sk8-Hi rejuvenates the usual canvas uppers with premium suede featuring contrast stitching of the vans stripe logo to sides. Old-School rubber reinforcements on the toe box and side panels for skateboarding have been added.”

These were originally known as the Style 138, with a rubber crescent moon toe cap, and an ollie pad.  For more retro knowledge, check out Pillowheat on Instagram!
