It’s difficult to believe it’s been over two decades since Long Beach’s Sublime released their pivotal album 40oz. to Freedom, a genre-defying sonic pastiche that would solidify the band’s regional popularity while setting the stage for national recognition, though the upward trajectory would be tragically cut short. Vans pays tribute to the SoCal legends with the release of a limited edition Sk8-Hi, featuring Opie Ortiz’s 40oz artwork adorning the shoe’s quarter panel and tongue. The build is completed with black suede paneling at the vamp and heel, and the white midsole is printed with Sublime’s logo. The Vans x Sublime Sk8-Hi is available exclusively through the brand and the band.
