In 1978, Vans Sk8 Hi brought something completely new to the table. The Sk8 Hi featured an innovative high-topped design - one of the first of its kind - which protected ankles from skateboards and opened the brand up to a whole new group of fans. Skate and punk culture go hand-in-hand, and the Sk8 Hi was donned by punk legends over the decades that followed.
Nowadays, you’re just as likely to see the Vans Sk8 Hi featuring on the pages of glossy fashion magazines as at a punk rock gig.
The Sk8 Hi is the OG of Vans high tops. Crafted from a durable canvas and suede upper, padded ankle collars and a leather side stripe, all of which sits upon the brand’s signature rubber outsole.
