Vans x AW-LAB x Sk8-Hi Reissue “American Flag”

Vans has teamed up with Italian retailer Athletes World, to create this remake of the original “American Flag” Sk8-Hi from back in the day.  It seems that a lot of other countries take pride in Americana, and we just seem to overlook it, in our quest to fit in, while standing out.  There’s a message somewhere in that.  Can we find it?  Anyways, true to the classics, the uppers are made of a navy suede, with canvas “American Flag” side panels.  Sitting on top of white soles, these are finished off nicely with white round cotton shoelaces.  Unfortunately, these are exclusive to AW-LAB, which means if you want a pair, you’ll have to purchase them from Italy!
