Vans Vault has come together with Philadelphia’s very own UBIQ, on this upcoming Sk8-Hi LX and Era LX pack. UBIQ went with a Japanese tattoo theme for this collection, enlisting Hiroshi Hirakawa, from one of the prestigious Three Tides Tattoo shop locations, his being in Osaka, Japan. The following quote is from UBIQ: “On both styles, you’ll find a depiction of a samurai on a Vans cargo ship confronting a mountain dragon looming in the sky. On the Sk8-Hi LX you’ll find the illustration on a canvas mid-panel fixed between black suede, whereas the full scenery can be viewed on the allover print of the low-top canvas upper of the Era LX. The box in which both of the UBIQ x Vault by Vans shoes come in is also fully covered in the same artwork.” As you can tell in the photos, the artwork is amazing, and UBIQ covered all the details in this collaboration. We can’t wait for it to release, and as soon as info becomes available, it will be on our forums.
