Splayed across numerous silhouettes including the Old Skool, the Slip-on, the Sk8-Hi, the brand-new Dazie-Hi, as well as accessories such as the camper hat and backpack, all of the aforementioned pieces will be available in a number of choice color combinations such as Spruce Yellow, Rhubarb Burgundy, Citadel Blue and Espresso Brown.
