Well, Taka?s done it again. Having artfully re-crafted the classic Sk8-Hi earlier this year, the Vans Vault designer is ready with another, even more premium round of Sk8-His. The revamped quarter panels or extreme plush leather lay over soft suede midfoot areas and wraps around the bases. Both colorways, which use Nero and Brown uppers, respectively, also show contrasting leather liners and thick leather-wrapped midsoles. Arguably two of the most luxurious Vans releases in recent memory, these two are available now at Nice Kicks and select other shops now for $140.
