Vans Vault x Taka Hayashi – TH Chukka LX (Summer 2012)

Ok, so these came out of nowhere!  Normally, a Taka Hayashi model gets some fairly early previewing but not this time.  The TH Chukka LX from Vans Vault has been kept under wraps, and until now we we’re wondering when the next TH design was going to drop.  Well a day after the conversation was sparked in our forums, these popped up on Hypebeast, and it’s about time.  We need our Taka collabs man!  The shoe is a new design, but labeled as a Chukka TH.  I guess the TH allows it to be considered an entirely different shoe, which it is.  It has style cues from the Akat LX, another Taka Hayashi designed Vans Vault model, and is wrapped in canvas and premium Horween leather.  They also feature leather laces, Taka’s signature feather logo on the tongue, and a woven lining.  They’ll be available in 3 colors:  Black, Dark Khaki, and Dark Slate.  Let’s hope these don’t reach anywhere near the $200 mark like the last TH release!
