Designer Taka Hayashi adds his spin to classic silhouettes for his latest Vans Vault collection, introducing a new take on the Half Cab alongside his reinterpretation of the Sk8-Hi.
Available in black and classic blue iterations, the TH Half Cab LX brings back the style of the 1980s and early ‘90s skateboarders on the original Half Cab. Taka details each pair with prints throughout the upper and midsole, custom embroidery and Half Cab branding.
The TH Court Hi LX finds its design from the familiar Sk8-Hi infused with vintage athletic styling. Available in classic blue and syrah, the premium aesthetic presents deluxe suede and canvas upper construction, padding-free ankle wrap and tonal stitching which retraces the sidestripe and ribbed collar featured on the original Sk8-Hi. They come finished off by Taka’s TH Paradise print across quarter and tongue.
The Vault by Vans x Taka Hayashi TH Half Cab LX and TH Court Hi LX arrive this September at select retailers.
