The Sk8-Hi, originally called Style 38, was introduced in 1978 as the premiere high top skate shoe. Introducing an innovative high padded collar for ankle support and a reinforced toe box, it was the second shoe to feature the iconic Vans sidestripe while simultaneously bringing a whole new look to the Vans family. It was and still is an emblem of “Off The Wall” culture.
Building on that first legendary high top, the Cordura Sherpa Sk8-Hi is constructed with CORDURA® fabrics that are recognized for their long-lasting durability and resistance to abrasion, tearing, and scuffs. Along with soft Sherpa linings, this durable lace-up shoe comes equipped with signature rubber waffle outsoles for reliable, everyday grip.
