Vans SK8-Hi Reissue Cap seemingly has the Virgil Abloh touch 

Unrefined and unpolished are just some of the immediate takeaways of the Vans SK8-Hi Reissue Cap. From a classic skate shoe look, Vans SK8-Hi gets redressed with an inside-out design. Its cut-and-paste treatment resembles Virgil Abloh's Off-White sneakers minus the Swoosh markings. 

Some speculate the SK8-Hi Reissue Cap is one of Virgil’s unproduced masterpieces before he left Vans and partnered with Nike. Whether there’s a truth behind this or not, the fact is Vans SK8-Hi Reissue Cap has the deconstructed Off-White vibe in a much, much cheaper tag.

This sneaker is up for grabs in color-block, floral, and checkerboard designs.
