What we say: Vibram soles are more than specific outdoor shoes. Hell, the iconic tooling can even be found on sandals these days. Now, however, the durable sole is entering a new category: skateboarding, as the Vault division of Vans just released two brand classics with Vibram soles.
The collaboration between Vault by Vans and Vibram takes the famous Sk8-Hi and Authentic and gives the must-have silhouettes a grunge makeover. The studded sole completely transforms every shoe, adding considerable height to your favorite Vans models. Inspired by high fashion statements and the urban subculture of the 90s, the Sk8-Hi and Authentic equipped with Vibram are available in all-white and all-black colourways, made from supple leather. As usual with these Vans sneakers, the branding is minimal, as Sk8-Hi’s Sidestripe appears in a subtle, tone-on-tone look. On both pairs, Vibram’s iconic yellow logo is applied to the heel midsole to signal the collaboration.
Also equipped with Ultracush technology for superior cushioning and comfort, the Sk8-Hi and Authentic soles with Vibram are currently available at select Vault by Vans retailers.
