From the ground up

The Akita Sk8-Hi LX features a beautiful crocodile embossed patent leather in both black/white and peach. As part Vans’ exclusive Vault collection, this Sk8 Hi offers a drop in footbed for a more comfortable feel than your standard Sk8 Hi. A little flashier than what we’re usually into, but if that’s what you’re looking for, these are a decent pick.

The Vans Vault Fall 2009 Akita Sk8-Hi LX is now in store at Proper.

Check out the other two colorways after the jump.
