In roughly a month’s time, Asian communities who celebrate the historic lunar calendar will welcome the New Year. The snake represents the next lunar cycle, and Stussy have teamed up with VANS for a commemorative “Year of the Snake” Sk8-Hi. Obvious influence from the Earthly creature can be found on the uppers, with a snakeskin pattern covering the sides, tongue, and toe box. A single safety-orange stripe highlights the monotone kicks. Finishing the shoes off are the “Year of the Snake” text on the heel panels and the snake illustration on the white foxing below it.
