The Vans Sk8-Hi was first released in 1978 as the “Style 38” and showcased the iconic Vans Sidestripe on another innovative silhouette. The Sk8-Hi took skate functionality to the next level with a hi top version of the classic vans sneaker. The silhouette featured above the ankle functionality which was perfect for skaters. The Sk8-Hi not only protected bones from skateboards but also brought a whole new look to the park.
Today the Vans Sk8 Hi has been reimagined to keep up with today’s streetwear elite, being worn by Sneakerheads, musicians and skaters alike. Check out the full collection at JD Sports, available for Men, Women and Kids.
