Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault 2015 Fall/Winter New Arrivals
Inspired by the vintage court shoe form and infused with iconic Vans styling cues, the TH Court Lo LX and Sk8-Hi LX returns with new colorways for Fall 2015. Acclaimed Vans designer Taka Hayashi works up another compelling mockup for this season with Vans Vault. Looking to the Sk8-Hi silhouette as a base, the Engineer LX as it’s dubbed, features a lush leather upper with criss-cross straps harnessed together by a metal ring – a nod at the design aesthetics seen on Americana boots. Hued in Marshmallow/Dark Gum, Hayashi’s deconstructed low-top is updated with a split tongue and trisected quarter panels, creating unique color blocking arrangements across each style. Finishing touches include tonal laces, embossed herringbone toe bumpers, diamond patterned sidewalls and Taka Hayashi branding embellishments.
