The Van Doren Sk8-Hi Reissue Lite, part of the 50th Anniversary collection, has reengineered the legendary Vans lace-up high top using innovative construction methods to improve comfort, increase flexibility, and reduce the overall weight. Featuring suede and canvas uppers with a reissued print from the Vans archive chosen by Steve Van Doren, the Sk8-Hi Lite offers a new lightweight fit and feel while maintaining the classic aesthetic of the original Sk8-Hi. It also includes added heel cushioning and UltraCush Lite sockliners for long lasting comfort.

i have a classic sk8-hi pair in red, and definitely prefer these.. they are so much lighter and more comfortable.. my only complaint is the quality of the laces- i ordered the black pair and the color seems to be rubbing off on the white laces, making them look dirty.. the laces are also quite delicate and seem prone to fraying.. i will be replacing mine with more durable laces..

THESE SHOES HAVE TERRIBLE GRIP!

i bought these shoes because i read many good reviews about how they were super comfy and perfectly functional for low-key recreational use. Some reviews even went on to say that they used these shoes for work, so naturally i thought they would serve my purposes. I have another pair of vans that are great, and have held up to all kinds of wear and tear over the course of my owning them. The problem with the sk8-hi LITE versions is that they skimped on the rubber soul in order to make the shoes lighter! I CANNOT wear these to work (since i work in a non-slip-soul-required environment), and i'm incredibly disappointed at the quality. Naturally, i'll be ordering the Canvas Sk8-Hi's (which are actually ten dollars less...) because they have the original soul material, so that i can use them for my previously intended function. If you are looking to use these shoes for anything that requires good grip on the bottoms, DON'T.
Love love love this shoe! These are my favorite sk-8 shoes . The color is a deep berry color and it is beautiful.The only thing negative that i have to say is that the dye is rubbing onto my laces . But I dont even care because I love these shoes so much !
Was this a gift?:
