When California boutique Blends celebrated its 10th anniversary, it partnered with Vans to create a sneaker called the Sk8-Hi Zip LX, a shoe that became instantly recognizable for the graphic of a bone stitched onto the side. It was massively successful, so successful that the brands have officially announced a limited reissue.

The reissue is identical in nearly every way to the first inception of the Sk8-Hi Zip LX – a premium black leather sneaker with side zipper and the placement of bones over the traditional Vans form stripes. The most notable difference is the bone has now become black, creating a singularly unified sneaker.

The Vans x Blends Sk8-Hi Zip LX reissue will be available on May 7 exclusively at Blends.
