Vans ArcAd TH X Powell Peralta

We are pleased to announce that we will be stocking the second Taka Hayashi release from the Vans ArcAd program. This new collection will be released on Saturday 11th November at 9am. The shoes are limited to 600 pairs worldwide! This time around Taka has focused on further influences from his youth. One major skateboarding force whose aesthetics will forever be imprinted on our minds eye is Powell Peralta and his soon to be released ArcAd capsule celebrates the company properly. The shoe above is the Style 138 Pro which has a rubber toe cap that this sneak peek doesn't show you. Powell Peralta text adorns the side panels and Future Primitive imagery is embroidered on the heel. Next he chose to work with a Caballero Pro...

These have a hairy suede oatmeal upper and the iconic checkerboard pattern appears on the sides. Tonal Taka Hayashi imagery appears subtly on the foxing. These are finished with the instantly recognisable Bones logo on the heel. These are enough of a love letter to the company which heavily influenced many of us but the pièce de résistance is the jacket which is covered in more imagery than a teenage brain could comprehend...

There are only 350 of these jackets worldwide! It has a skull and sword back embroidery, repeating cross bones embroidery on the arm and Taka Hayashi signs off with embroidery on the breast. This is quite a pack and we are excited about it. Visit us on Saturday at 9am to get involved! Shop for Vans HERE
