Vans x Pearl Jam SK8-Hi

Already having previewed this a few weeks back, Vans’ collaboration with Pearl Jam to commemorate the band’s 20th anniversary is finally out and we can check out this limited edition release in more detail.

The two colorways are tributes to Pearl Jam, as a green/yellow suede make-up is a nod to their home town’s former basketball team Seattle Supersonics, whereas the black suede/flannel references the band famously donning flannel shirts before the grunge music scene really kicked off.

Both pairs feature ‘PJ’ accompanied by crossbones on the tongue tab, the band’s name stitched into the heel, further artwork on the in-sole and all wrapper up in exclusive packaging. These are available now from Sneakersnstuff.
