Andrew Allen teams up with his board sponsor, Hockey, and long time shoe sponsor to release the Vans Authentic Hi - a silhouette from deep within the Vans archive. Released with a supporting, vintage-inspired, collection.
The inspiration for this Vans x Hockey collection came from a catalogue dated from the mid 2000s and the Authentic Hi shoe that caught Andrew's eye. The result is this Authentic Hi Pro, the shoe features an UltraCush footbed giving support and board feel, whilst Duracap technology adds reinforced underlays to high-wear areas to prolong the shoe's lifespan.
The colourway is an elevated cotton sateen and cotton twill upper, and it features an external vulcanised rubber ollie patch to help with durability. The heel scab logo gets the 'shattered' treatment, which is a nod to Hockey's graphics. Inside the shoes you'll find the interior embroidered with Andrew's name in his own handwriting.
