Japanese-American artist and designer Taka Hayashi has a long track record with Vans. Each of his collaborations puts an abnormal spin on Vans’ classic silhouettes; bringing an elevated sense of elegance to a pair of regular sneakers. Vans Vault will release his latest run of Sk8-Hi’s in their Fall 2011 collection. The sneakers bear his signature stylings, with a double upper, the outer layer made of smooth leather and the inner suede. Tan leather is used for the midsole, a departure even for Vans, and the shoes are capped off with leather laces and his logo stitched on the tongue. Hit the jump for some more detailed photos of yet another ill pair of kicks.
