Vans x Lotties Sk8-Hi Pro LTD - Blue/Black
Inspired by old ‘Ray Barbee footage’ from the ‘80s, the blue and black Sk8-Hi Pro combines artistic creativity with superior boardfeel to ensure characterised comfort at every turn. Styled with brushed-navy suede uppers with grainy zine-style canvas panelling across the midfoot and padded collar. Honouring the independent skate shop from each angle through the pin-line fiery flame detailings across the crisp-white rubber midsole, the tonal-etched ‘Griptape is $5 Dipshit’ sidestripe decal and the custom-designed faded quarter featuring exclusive artwork from owner Mike Gigliotti, these sneakers complement Vans’ iconic structure by coaxing a notion of commemorative self-expression to the surface. Remaining loyal to the traditional Pro profile with its single-wrap foxing, PopCush sockliner and DURACAP rubber underlays, the energised design is sealed with custom decorated insoles featuring artwork from Gigliotti and with jagged-edge ‘Lotties’ debossed branding across the block-tone heels, a subtle reference to the pillar foundations laid by such independent skate shops.
Best known as a community-centered outlet designed to help provide the perfect platform for the next generation of skaters to get out there and get noticed, Californian independent skate shop Lotties continues to break the mould with their ‘give-back’ attitude and their priceless sense of abstract character.
