Along with Vans Sk8 Hi Reissue CA, the Vans Sk8 Hi Hiker will be released in the Holiday 2010 Collection. Notwithstanding the name, these kicks are distinctly a pair of sneakers not intended for hiking. It seems like Vans is bringing a bit of nature to the "cemented" skate territory, and as hopping on the outdoor trail that has been rather popular within the sneaker world for a few seasons now.
The Vans Sk8 Hi Hiker comes in two color schemes, black/brown and grey/black, featured in canvas and suede uppers, along with dappled, fat hiking laces laces, classic white soles and hiking's signature hook eyelets. Keep your eyes open for these kicks, available soon at Van retail stores.
