Skateboarding is an art form, and when you're an artist who skateboards, you get the best of both worlds. Vans gets Santa Monica's own Taka Hayashi to compose his rendition of the Half Cab Artist Series, part of their 20 year anniversary collection. The shoe incorporates a nice mix of brown, teal, and khaki colors along with some unique material choices to blend and form a one-of-a-kind design. Hayashi's personal take on the Half Cab branding is stitched on the lateral side — a multi-colored stripe patch with a skater slightly "past his prime" airborne on his board. Make sure you head on over to Vans online shop to secure your pair now.
