Retailer BLENDS and Vans Vault have collaborated on a new skate shoe, the Sk8-Hi Zip LX. The chief visual inspiration here is said to be vintage motorcycle gloves, as the Sk8-Hi Zip LX shoes are wrapped in a premium leather upper with white “bone” graphics where the usual Vans stripes would be.
It’s part of a celebration of BLENDS’ ten years in business, and will be available in a limited edition of only 100 pairs. If you want one, head to one of BLENDS’ retail locations in Costa Mesa, Los Angeles, San Diego, or Santa Ana, plus their online store here, where the shoes will be available as supplies last starting on Friday, March 8.
