Vans Sk8-Mid: Comfort and style beyond the median

The Vans Sk8 family continues to grow in breadth. Chopping a few inches off the Sk8-Hi's collar, the Anaheim-based brand launched the Mid version. And to keep it valuable through the years, the brand has developed several versions - such as the retro Vans Sk8-Mid Reissue and skater-friendly Vans Sk8-Mid Pro

Who is this for?

  • Wearers obsessed with the style of Vans Sk8-Hi but hate the hassle of putting it in, the Mid version perfectly suits them. With its ankle-high collar, they can quickly adjust the laces according to their preference for an easier foot entry. 
  • For buyers looking for a supportive sneaker without a restrictive feel, the Mid has the "right amount of collar height," covering just the area below the ankle. 
  • Sneaker fans who are attracted to the fusion of skate shoes and casual sneakers, this best fits them. Originally molded as a skate shoe, the Mid now wins the lifestyle fashion for its vibrant hues, attractive patterns, and stylish profile. 
  • For budget-conscious sneaker collectors, the Sk8-Mid fits the bill. Just like the majority of Vans sneakers, this model has an economical price range.
