Taka Hayashi has done some great Vans in the past couple years. He did some Syndicate Chukkas, a Simpsons Sk8 Hi and soon to be this full pack consisting of four pairs of shoes. This pack is going to be part of the Vans holiday collection. Taka has been one of the elite artists for the past years. He grew up in Japan, then flew over to Santa Monica where his skateboarding culture started. Through his artistic creations, you can see the 80s skate culture with a vibrant art scene mixed into it. Taka has been around for quite some time and his artistic creations have been highly sought after.
This pack, which is slated to release Holiday ’07, consists of 4 pairs of shoes. The pairs consist of the new Rowley “Shambles”, the AV Sk8 Lo, DD-66 and the TNT III Slip On. All shoes appear to be black suede, with white artistic renderings and a white midsole. Black shoes, white midsole are always okay by me. Be on the lookout for these come winter.
