Vans Taka Hayashi Fall 2014 New Arrivals
Taka Hayashi’s indelible mark on Classic silhouettes and tireless effort to challenge conventions of sneaker designs can be felt in every piece he touches. For his latest Vault by Vans release, the renowned designer and artist presents two capsules that truly epitomize his footwear craftsmanship across a selection of iconic Vans styles. The dual offering introduces a high-end take on the Mid Skool alongside huarache-inspired renditions of the Era. Offered in “Honey” colorway, Hayashi’s deluxe mid-top showcases intricate detailing across the range with diamond-embossed quarter panels, accent stitched ankle counters, herringbone-molded toe bumper and pressed midsole. Influenced by traditional huarache-crafting techniques, the TH Era Huarache LX is presented in a duo set. The Bordo editions of the Era Huarache combine dark leather uppers with wool accents at the midfoot section of the low-top. The Mustang silhouette exhibit a softer appearance, hued in light tones and fashioned in premier pig suede and Italian woven textiles. Stylized perforations, laser-etched accents, rawhide laces and metal eyelets complete the Huarache-inspired aesthetic of the Era.
