The Vans Sk8-Hi Notchback Pro gets a bit of help from Christian Hosoi who in turn gives us an elegant sneaker that is more than meets the eye. On the surface the royal blue suede upper is met with white leather accents and hits of red on the eyelet and tongue but there is more there upon closer inspection. Side panel perforations imply the Japanese sun image in a very subtle tribute that also keeps the sneaker ventilated. These are available now at select Vans retailers worldwide.
