Editor’s Notes: Tokyo-based contemporary menswear label nonnative teams up with Vans to reinterpret the footwear label’s iconic Sk8-Hi silhouette. By using suede for its upper, the model is detailed with removable zipper parts used for military boots. In addition, nonnative’s understated tag appears on the tongue and insole.

Rendered in versatile tones of “Tope Biege” and “Black,” find it at select retailers starting January 10.

Previously, Vans and Opening Ceremony team up for a lavish “Floral Noir” pack.
