Earlier this year, teaser images of the first-ever collaboration between Canadian-streetwear staple Raised By Wolves, boutique Off The Hook, and stateside skateboarding imprint Vans surfaced. Though much wasn’t revealed initially, save from the added red band on the middle of the shoes’ endsole, fans have been highly anticipating an official look at the fresh, new release. The time has finally come, as the collaborative collection features two luxified versions of the classic Sk-8 Hi and Old Skool models.
Both silhouettes see an upper reinforced with Scotchguard technology and sealed zippers that ensures heat stays in while protecting feet from the harsh conditions of the Canadian (or any Northern region) climate. Vans’ signature jazz stripe in reflective 3M material adorns the side of both styles, while na inverse of suede and leather on each pair of shoes showcases versatility in its design throughout.
