The brand new Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF in Dane Reynolds's signature colorway combines the iconic Vans high top skate shoe with the Vans Surf SF build. Made with water-based inks and glues, the Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF features sturdy canvas and suede uppers with graphic details, UltraCush sockliners with upgraded cushioning, Pro Vulc Lite construction, and classic rubber waffle outsoles.
These are by far my favorite shoes that I have gotten from Vans and thats coming from someone who has purchased 100+ pairs in the last 3 years that I have been working with the company and far more before that since Ive been wearing them since I formally exited the womb. I love the Black Ball HI, AV Classic Hi's and Sk8 hi Decons but all are super hard to find and only seasonal, plus wearing a mens size 6 makes it even tougher. But i love this shoe because ive found that as my style has changed over the years, its been harder for me to find a pair of vans that I love unconditionally and can wear with a lot of things but then I found this shoe! (Dont get me wrong, checkered slip ons, old skools and sk8 his will always be staple items and favorites in my closet). When I got these I wore them everyday for 2 weeks straight and as someone with more shoes than I have space for, thats really saying something,

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Pretty disappointed. So many people I know don't wear Vans anymore because of the lack of support. The add says "ultra cush sock liner"… which means nothing. I thought they would have ultra cush inserts, the only reason I wear Vans these days. Vans will not sell ultra cush inserts separately either, I have no idea why.
