Ben Kadow’s on-board style is hard to define. It’s classic — rooted in decades of New York skate legends before him — but also contemporary, pushing the boundaries of street skating with a fearless, stick-or-slam mentality. He’s been a Vans Skate team member since 2018, is part of Hockey Skateboards and had a star turn in Supreme’s Blessed film. All this unique style and experience is incorporated on Kadow’s new Vans sneaker: a spiderweb-equipped take on the Sk8-Hi that follows up his Supreme-exclusive Sk8-Hi release from earlier in October.

 

 

Vans Skate Classics

 

Vans Skate Classics by Ben Kadow Sk8-Hi is centered around an olive nylon quarter panel and collar that’s covered from top to bottom by an expansive black spider web graphic. Its forefoot, toebox, eyestays and heel are dressed in supple-yet-sturdy black suede, while black and olive meet on the rope laces. Branding is handled by a black Jazz Stripe and an olive-splashed tongue badge. Further special graphics also appear on the insoles, thanks to a shatter print and Kadow’s stylized signature. High-gloss black midsoles and vulcanized gum rubber outsoles round off the look.

Increased grip

From a performance standpoint, the Vans Skate Classics by Ben Kadow Sk8-Hi features a POPCUSH energy return sockliner for superior cushioning and impact protection. DURACAP underlays and knurled foxing tape promise durability that can tackle even the toughest, Kadow-approved daily skate sessions, and the classic outsole is elevated with a SICKSTICK rubber compound for more grip and board feel.
