Portland, Oregon snowboard-oriented label Holden got together with Vans on a special release Sk8-Hi for Fall/Winter 2011. The sneakers are constructed of premium leather inside and out, with waxed canvas panels and waxed laces. Of note are the subtle structural changes, such as the heel tab and suede rand, alongside various hits of Holden branding. These will release alongside matching Vans x Holden snowboard boots.
