The Sk8-Hi high tops are some of the sweetest Vans high tops out there, as they have two different colors of leather and are thick enough to support skater's lower legs and ankles. This is one of the original Vans skater shoes, as it was designed specifically for skaters, before Vans became a better known brand outside the skating and extreme sports community. The soles also have the proper grip for skateboards, giving skaters the perfect feel while they are riding. These Vans high tops retail for around fifty five dollars a pair, though you can customize the colors of the leather on the outside of the Sk8-Hi.
Vans has broadened into a number of different models of high top shoes, ranging from those for athletes to those for men and women to wear out on the town. While Vans doesn't have many types of shoes, especially high tops that are made specifically for women, the Vans Avery shoes are a glaring exception, as these stylish boots look more like designer shoes then high tops that were born out of the skate style. While they still have the white rubber Vans sole, the rest of the shoe is fashioned out of black suede and connected with checkered buttons long the top. These sweet Vans retail for about fifty five dollars.
Like the aforementioned Sk8-Hi Vans high tops, these Vans are based on the classic skater shoe that offers support to ankles and traction for skaters. However, the Super Sk8-Hi add an extra few inches of fabric to the top of these shoes, giving even more support to the foot and ankle, as well as a notable, funky look to whoever wears them. These high tops also come in colors like Azalea, making them stand out even more from all the other Vans high tops out there. These also cost around fifty-five dollars new.
A lower sort of high top, the Vans Half Cab is taller than a low top but not as high as a high top, trying to be the best of both worlds for skaters and casual wearers alike. This gives people the support of a high top, but the more casual look and ease to put on of a low top shoe. These Vans come in a wide variety of different colors and also cost around fifty five dollars new.
With the style and class of John Cardiel and the Vans athletic style, this shoe was produced, creating a classy high top that is made from leather and suede and is nice enough to wear with formal clothing. This sweet pair of Vans costs around sixty dollars, new.
