The Sk8-Hi, or Style 38 as it was originally known, was the first extended-height sneaker that the SoCal skate brand ever made. If you’ve ever been unlucky enough to experience the pain of taking a wayward board direct to the ankle, you’ll understand the importance of this shoe. Beyond the skate specifics, the Sk8-Hi is still just as popular today because, well, it looks so good. A firm favourite for everyone from Ye to your old man, this high-cut classic is a necessity in every sneaker stash.
With their latest drop, Vans is looking out for your toes as well as your ankles. The signature canvas uppers have been treated with a water-repellent coating, making these a go-to for this season’s turbulent weather conditions. 'Ivy Green' and black combine nicely for some subtle military vibes that can slide into your new year rotation with ease.
Tapered jeans suit the slim shape of the Sk8-Hi perfectly (keep them black, too), then throw on an overhead jacket for supreme streetwear style.
