Vans Vault x Taka Hayashi Style 138 LX 'Animal Pack'

Vans Vault x Taka Hayashi Style 138 LX 'Animal Pack'
Bringing the safari to California’s coastline, Japan’s own Taka Hayashi remasters the Style 138 with help from skating legend Vans Vault.  





The wildlife-inspired release offers the Style 138 LX model (similar to the Vans Sk8-Hi) in two bold colourways of zebra print/brown and cheetah print/blue. Both pairs feature an all-over print canvas upper, leather branding stripes and suede panels at the lace trim and heel counter. The collaborative models are complete with a white vulcanized rubber cupsole sporting special graphics and co-branding at the heel.



First up is the white and black striped version. Striped like a zebra and overlaid with rich suedes, feel the authentic touch of Hayashi with textured appeal that lasts. With a skillset that’s made him a Vans mainstay, the Japanese creative brings animal print into play this time around; wrapping the black and white uppers with a taste of the wild, with signature Vans details bringing substance and style to the on-board icon.





The next Style 138 combines cheetah print uppers and rich suedes with inky blue accents to complete the look. Enhanced as always with padded collars, reinforced details and a vulcanised midsole, the Vans and Taka Hayashi’s Style 138 expresses the animalistic touch of both groups. 



The Vans Vault x Taka Hayashi Style 138 LX 'Animal Pack' is now available at our CPT, JHB and online store.
