Vans x 8Five2 – Sk85ive2 Half Cab 20th Anniversary (Event Recap)

Photography and words via Hypebeast:

“In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Steve Caballero’s storied Half Cab shoe, Vans has been celebrating the occasion with an assortment of events and special releases throughout the year. Taking place at the recently launched Sk85ive2 indoor skatepark in Hong Kong, Vans celebrated the milestone with a special event this past weekend. Featuring the usual suspects – drinks, waffle soles and skateboarding, the event also showcased four new Half Cab iterations that will be steadily rolled out beginning this month through September 2012. The new Half Cab styles were initiated by “Cab” himself in which the iconic skateboarder tapped a few of his favorite artists to appropriate their own take on the signature shoe. While more information will be forthcoming on the specifics releases, a special Caballero-designed style was on display and originally unveiled via the Hypebeast Instagram here. The pair is mocked up in a buttery suede upper, set atop a pure white outsole and features custom designed Caballero art on the side panel and tongue tag.”
