Designer/artist Taka Hayashi brings forth this two-piece installment of his signature TH Sk8-Mid Skool LX, via Vault By Vans.

Taka re-imagined the classic Vans Mid Skool for a deluxe footwear piece, which comes in two new colorways that pay homage to Vans’ coveted checkerboard pattern.

One shoe comes in a black leather color-up, which expresses the celebrated motif as a print across its split side panels, while the brick suede variation exhibits intricate woven detailing as a nod to Vans’ design heritage. Embossed midsole accents, vulcanized waffle outsole construction and Taka Hayashi branding puts the finishing touches on each edition.

The Vault by Vans x Taka Hayashi TH Sk8-Mid Skool drops in March at select boutique accounts for $150 USD.
