“Style 38”, now known as Sk8-hi, was introduced in 1978 which was the second model to boast the iconic Vans sidestripe or formerly known as the “jazz stripe”. The Sk8-hi took skate performance to the next level – just above the ankle. Wherein skateboarders would abuse lower body the most. The Sk8-hi not only protects your ankle/feet, it brought it in a whole new style to the skate park.

Vans brings you a brief history on the now iconic the Sk8-hi, from the 1970’s to the present.

Meet Ara.

Led by Motorola’s Advanced Technology and Projects group, Project Ara is developing a free, open hardware platform for creating highly modular smartphones. We want to do for hardware what the Android platform has done for software: create a vibrant third-party developer ecosystem, lower the barriers to entry, increase the pace of innovation, and substantially compress development timelines. Our goal is to drive a more thoughtful, expressive, and open relationship between users, developers, and their phones. To give you the power to decide what your phone does, how it looks, where and what it’s made of, how much it costs, and how long you’ll keep it.
