Let's get one thing out of the way, If you don’t know who Christian Hosoi is, you’re not allowed to buy these shoes, which is a bummer because they may be some of the dopest Sk8-Hi’s that have come out in a long time. Vans Vault always brings the heat and these are no exceptions. Look at the super supple blue butter suede and, FYI, the notch back is great because, um, have you ever worn a pair Sk8-Hi's? Shit is mad uncomfortable rubbing all up and down the back of your ankle. C’mon, relieve those days when you had a Ninja Turtles deck with the plastic wheels, and you thought you were gonna get sponsored for tail sliding the curb outside your mom’s house. Please also start spray painting “SK8 OR DIE” all over your neighborhood.
