Vans recently teamed up with Hong Kong-based streetwear label, MADNESS, for a collection of footwear, including the SK8-Hi and the SK8-Mid.
Both sneakers feature gray, black and blue suede uppers — the grey sitting atop a white sole, while the black and blue versions getting black soles. Other details include the quote “All work and no play makes you mad” printed on the midsoles, which is tatted on MADNESS founder Shawn Yue’s hand and inspired by the movie The Shining; and Madness branding at the heel, where an additional zipper is added for easy access.
The Vans x MADNESS collection will prelaunch on Feb. 11 at MADNESS’ Beijing store and online. A wider release will follow on Feb. 18 at select Vans stores throughout Asia.
