With the success of its “Inferno” and “Independence Day” New Balance 998s, J.Crew has shown it’s found the sweet spot where both sneakerheads and menswear connoisseurs live. The nationwide retail chain is now teaming up with Vans to perform a similar form of design alchemy. The silhouette of choice here is the always popular Sk8-Hi, reworked with metal eyelets, two-tone work boot laces and a tonal leather jazz stripe stitched onto a washed canvas upper. An off-white midsole and Vans’ iconic waffle-tread outsole complete the look. Available in blue or grey colorways, the Vans for J.Crew Sk8-Hi Reissue can pre-ordered here.
