Editor’s Notes: Vans has just launched a new “Patchwork” pack featuring a pair of classic models in the Sk8-Hi and Authentic.
At the core, the designs draw inspiration from the traditional art of Japanese Boro and Sashiko stitching. Boro patchwork makes use of scraps of cloth, while Sashiko serves as decorative embroidery.
If you like what you see in the “Patchwork” Sk8-Hi and Authentic, you can pick up your size today through Vans providers such as Hype DC.
