The last of the product from the special project between VANS and Japanese artist Usugrow (è–„é»’) is this model Half Cab Pro Tohoku Skull. Obviously as a package these will also drop on March 2009 and pre orders have started at Usugrow’s online store.
On this model black full smooth leather was used on the upper with white Tohoku Skull graphics embroidered on the heels hence the name. Unlike the Sk8 Hi models, there are no other embroidery on the uppers keeping this sneaker clean and simple. Apart from the aesthetics, this Half Cab is slightly heavier than the usual models due to the thick smooth leather being used. There are also white script graphics on the insoles as well as outsoles which can be seen through clear rubber.
For orders from Usugrow’s online store, there will be some extra bonuses such as free sticker and a personally signed box. Also there will be releases of two black tees with Lotus Skull and Straight graphics designs.
