Known for his high-end sneaker designs and attention to detail, designer Taka Hayashi has collaborated with Vans’ premium Vault by Vans label for a unique collection this season. A custom Pendleton Wool blanket is the main materials used for this capsule and holds vibrant tones and Southwestern-styled motifs inspired by Hayashi’s paintings. Matching TH Slip-On LX and TH Sk8 Huarache LX models are hand-cut, hand-stitched and handcrafted from the same beautiful fabrics, so no pairs are the same.
With a moccasin-inspired aesthetic, leather trims and embossed midsoles, this is one of the TH Slip-On LX’s most premium iterations to date. The TH Sk8 Huarache LX is a new Sk8-Hi silhouette reimagined by Hayashi that features a gray suede exterior at the front with patterned quarter panels and an embellished, laser-etched heel counter. The Pendleton x Taka Hayashi x Vault by Vans capsule collection is scheduled to drop on November 28 with a price range of $120-285 USD at Vans stockists including Barneys, Bodega, Boon The Shop, Colette, Dover Street Market, Gravity Pope, Hanon Shop, J2 Sneakerbox, Juice, KITH, Naked, Off The Hook, Sneakersnstuff, Undefeated and Wish ATL.
