Launched in ’78, the Vans Sk8-Hi sneaker became the second style to incorporate the iconic Vans Sidestripe into the design. Originally introduced as ‘Style 38’, these functional sneakers added another layer of protection for hardcore skaters. Helping to cushion their ankles from tough moves and rogue skateboards, the Vans Sk8-Hi remains a popular choice for both sporty types and the streetwear elite.
The Vans Sk8-Hi is a lightweight, high-top shoe, with padded collars for extra support and flexibility. These classic sneakers feature heel cushioning for added comfort, along with the signature rubber waffle outsoles that skaters have come to love.
