Vans Celebrates The Legacy Of The Sidestripe With Special Retrospective Sk8-Hi Timeline

When the Sk8-Hi first premiered in 1978, skateboarders and BMX riders alike appreciated the ankle protection of a high-top sneaker, which eventually made it a staple in action sports culture. Now, Vans pays tribute to the sneaker and its classic Sidestripe design with an extensive release for the Fall 2014 season.

From the ‘70s-inspired Golden Coast color-ups to the vibrant Yoda Aloha-printed rendition in the Vans x Star Wars™ collection, these new Sk8-Hi models are all continuing the legacy of one the most innovative sneakers in footwear history.
