Taka Hayashi’s collaborative work with Vans, whatever the theme ends up being, can always be counted on to deliver premium leather, craftsmanship, and detailing. The latest work from Hayashi and Vans Vault is no exception.
Two Vans bedrocks, the Slip On and the Sk8-Hi, feature two-tone leather uppers with laser cut, ornamental, perforated patterns. The shoes are released under the banner of ‘Nomad,” which showcases the pronounced, Native influence in Hayashi’s work.
The timeless, uncomplicated design that defines Vans makes shoes like the Slip on and the Sk8-Hi particularly well suited for Hayashi’s signature aesthetic. The Nomad collection strikes a fine balance between traditional walking footwear, casual fashion, and classic Vans. The Nomad name is exceptionally apt in this case. These are shoes that can travel from place to place, from situation to situation, and fit in perfectly.
