Words via Hypebeast:

“It’s no secret that Vans silhouettes like the Sk8-Hi and Classic Slip-On have long been the go-to sneakers for everyone from artists and musicians to skaters and globetrotters – while they don’t last forever, they’re infinitely affordable and look even better once they’ve been worn in and beaten up a bit. With that in mind, Milk Magazine has teamed up with the timeless SoCal label in honor of the publication’s 12-year anniversary. Opting for heavyweight 14oz cotton uppers, the kicks come in a denim blue hue – which bleeds down on to the midsole thanks to a unique distressing process employed by Vans here for the first time – with contrasting white accents throughout. While the Slip-On comes decked out with splatter details, the Sk8-Hi sees a graffiti-like drip effect applied to the iconic Jazz Stripe; both eschew foxing stripes for a streamlined touch. Limited to just 200 pairs, the celebratory release is due out this Friday, September 27 at a special Milk x Vans pop-up space in Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay before hitting additional Vans flagships across Hong Kong over the weekend.”
