The Canvas Sk8-Hi Decon brings a twist to the iconic Vans Sk8-Hi silhouette: a new deconstructed high-top canvas upper with deco stitch detailing that lets the material shape on its own accord without much structural constriction.
Completely redesigned for modern skateboarding, the all-new Cher Strauberry Skate Sk8-Hi Decon delivers more of what skateboarders need to enable maximum progression. The repositioned DURACAP™ reinforced underlays and fully redesigned uppers, combined with a new two-part foxing tape that features a deeper knurl pattern on the toe, make the Cher Strauberry Skate Sk8-Hi Decon durable enough to withstand daily skateboarding abuse. For more board control, the new molded heel counter and internal tongue straps lock in your feet. Even the gum rubber sole that made Vans famous has been elevated with the SICKSTICK™ rubber compound to deliver more grip and boardfeel. Plus, POPCUSH™ energy return sockliners provide superior cushioning and impact protection while helping to lessen leg fatigue for longer skate sessions. Internal heel stiffeners have also been added to provide more support and stability.
The Cher Strauberry Skate Sk8-Hi Decon’s updated foxing tape, along with a mix of suede and heavy canvas uppers showcasing Cher’s love of animal prints, gives you the iconic look you want while bringing all the performance benefits skateboarders demand. The new checkerboard flag on the side guarantees that you’re getting the best in style and modern skateboarding performance, and tonal sidewall print and strawberry embroidery lend this deconstructed high-top style a bold yet elevated edge.
- Original Waffle Outsole
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. These don't provide as much foot protection as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
PopCush™ - Vans' PopCush insoles snap back and won't pack! This proprietary foam compound was meticulously tuned and tested for impact protection, superior cushioning, and custom energy return. This upgraded foam performs better than Vans' UltraCush™ compound for all types of skating so you can skate longer and go harder than ever before.
Original Waffle Outsole - Made with soles twice as thick so they would wear longer, this original formula combines durability with flexy board-feel to keep all the Vans' fans happy.
Duracap™ - Developed and tested to withstand the abuse of the Vans pro skateboarding team; reinforcement is provided through rubber underlays in the toebox and ollie-area for lasting durability to save you time and money.
SickStick™ - Taking inspiration from Vans' beloved original gum rubber formula, the SickStick formula is the grippiest and the stickiest gum sole in Vans history. Extensively tested by Vans' team riders, the formula is uniquely calibrated to deliver enhanced grip and durability, and also make a firm bind to the foxing tape, so you can be in complete control of your board.
