Concepts is returning to the Vans Sk8-Hi for its third team up with the California-based skate shoe brand.

The sneaker again comes from the Vans Syndicate imprint, just like the "Rat Hunter" and "Combat Zone" pairs of old. This Vans Sk8-Hi take wears croc-embossed leather on the sides, premium pebbled leather on the eyestays, and some more leather down into the lining. Unique to this pair is the zippered shroud that covers the laces, which can be removed for a more traditional look.

This Concepts x Vans Syndicate Sk8-Hi will release at Concepts' Cambridge store on March 28, with a limited online release to follow at noon the same day.
