History: Vans Sk8-hi

dispatch, Swag

“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.
