Unisex Desert Sk8-Hi
The Sk8-Hi was introduced in 1978 as Style 38, and showcased the now iconic Vans Sidestripe on a new, innovative high top silhouette. As only the second model featuring the recognizable marker formerly known as the “jazz stripe,” the Sk8-Hi brought a whole new look to the Vans family.
Building on that first legendary high top, the Desert Sk8-Hi features rattlesnake graphics mixed with our iconic checkerboard print. This lace-up shoe also includes durable suede and textile uppers, re-enforced toe caps, supportive padded collars, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
