In following up on their recent Old Skool collaboration, Vans Vault and Saint Alfred are back together again, here taking on the Sk8-Hi Binding LX. The deconstructed kicks note the removal of ankle padding and Vans’ signature stripe that is in turn implied through stitched detailing. A Ventile woven water-repellant upper is paired with a gusseted tongue that will prevent water from penetrating the sneaker, which is then lined with leather and welcomes the brand’s OrthoLite insert.
Each pair of the Saint Alfred x Vans Vault Sk8-Hi Binding LX comes in a tape-sealed Vans box with the contents marked on the exterior of the container, alongside a natural cotton shoe bag and second pair of natural cotton laces. Each shoe box is hand-numbered 1/100.
The collaborative kicks will be available on April 30 through Saint Alfred.
