New Vans Vault Taka Hayashi in Store and Online Saturday 11.28.15
The Vault by Vans x Taka Hayashi Pendleton Blanket serves as the centerpiece of the overall collection, based on the colors and imagery from one of Hayashi’s earlier paintings. The Southwestern-styled motifs and tones of the blanket create a unique visual experience on every shoe crafted – no two pairs are alike since the swatches are hand cut and stitched to the uppers. The TH Slip-On LX is one of the most luxurious re-interpretations of the Classic Slip-On profile, showcasing a moccasin-inspired aesthetic and saddle leather trim package atop an embossed midsole wrap. Another iconic Vans silhouette, the Sk8-Hi, is reimagined and refined by Hayashi to become the TH Sk8 Huarache LX. The diagonally dissected build of the TH Sk8 Huarache LX reveals a smooth, smoky suede exterior at the front end while the backside features an embellished, laser-etched heel counter and patterned quarter panels.
