Taka Hayashi is taking some classic Vans silhouettes south of the border with this new set.

The "Paradise Pack", which utilizes the Vans Sk8-Hi and the Vans Authentic, dons graphics drawn up by Hayashi himself feautring skeletons, flowers, and skateboards. The skeleton aspect of the set has us wondering if they wouldn't have made more sense slated for October for a Dia de Los Muertos connection (these are inspired by Mexican embroidery), but they won't show up too late afterwards. Find imagery on each pair below and watch for the Vans x Taka Hayashi "Paradise Pack" to hit stores this month.
