Vans is celebrating 50 years in business with the launch of 50 colorways of its iconic Sk8-Hi, representing the brand's first ever high-top silhouette, originally dubbed the Vans "Style 38" in 1977. The 50 renditions of the Sk8-Hi come in men's and women's sizes in designs that showcase its built-in versatility. On the men's side, highlights include the shoe in Zip and Reissue forms, spanning premium leather options and quarter panel finished with bandana prints, digitally printed floral and woven textile inserts, all embellished with Vans' signature sides tripe.  The women's collection features new colorways of canvas builds, as well as new playful prints -- including an all-over banana design, tropical motifs and a specialty print from New York artist, Baron Von Fancy -- and a new model in the form of the Sk8-Hi Slim Cutout, designed with a see-through mesh liner on the quarter panel. Shop the collection now at Vans stores and online.
