Vans x Holden – Sk8-Hi (review!)

Finally, some real pics of the newly released Vans x Holden Sk8-Hi!  Thanks to Erwin, for purchasing these right when they came out, because now I can give you all a proper review, in a timely fashion, while these are still in stock.  However, I believe that after this post, that’s all going to change.  Materials are the name of the game these days, especially when it comes to special collaborations, and that is what’s going to make these sell, even if everyone has at least 10 different variations of a black on white pair of Vans.  There is no question that these are a must have for you collectors.  From the soft, supple, premium leathers, to the black waxed canvas (that Vans seems to have a surplus on), to the cream colored sole, complete with a suede foxing strip, with stitching.  Oh, it doesn’t end there.  The Holden branded removable PU sockliner has the same material and cream color as the soft leather lining, for added comfort, and the waxed laces are a must when you’ve taken a shoe’s design this far into premiumville!  The heel tab has an embossed “h” on it, the tongue has a big red Holden tag that will instantly tell others what these are, and there’s a small personal message on the inner top lace eyelet, just for you :).  Peep the jump, for some awesomely detailed pics, because this is definitely one of those “look’s better in person” kind of shoes.  Also, need I remind you that these are only $79.99?!!
