You’ve heard of Vans, you know The Simpsons and you probably even heard about this collaboration. What you may not know is these are extremely limited so get sum now or eat our shorts.
The Sk8-Hi was introduced in 1978 as “Style 38,” and showcased the now-iconic Vans Sidestripe on yet another innovative silhouette. As only the second model featuring the recognizable marker formerly known as the “jazz stripe,” the Sk8-Hi took skate functionality to the next level above the ankle, where skateboarders used and abused their lower extremities the most. The Sk8-Hi not only shielded bones from skateboards catapulted at them but also brought a whole new look to the park.
Don’t miss your opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of The Simpsons as Vans pays tribute to America’s favorite cartoon family. Part of a radical collection of footwear, apparel, and accessories, The Simpsons x Vans Sk8-Hi combines the legendary lace-up high top with two Simpson family portraits: one representing the characters’ first appearance in 1987, and one depicting them today. Check out those not so subtle details. Speaking of details, this sneaker also includes multi-colored checkerboard panels, re-enforced toecaps to withstand repeated wear, padded collars for support and flexibility and Vans signature rubber waffle outsoles. Extremely limited, you’ll be lucky to find a pair in your size. Doh!
