Vans creates a new version of its signature Sk8-Hi sneaker design for the warmer season. The design language draws influence from DIY culture and the doodling aesthetics that it evokes. The custom essence is captured with the colorful accents adorning the uppers.

The model comes from an angle that emphasizes the message of peace, featuring multiple colors throughout the predominantly white uppers made from canvas materials. To refer to its overarching peaceful theme, the side showcases a large peace symbol. Additional details include the checkerboard pattern over the toe cap, crossbones emblem, planet doodles, and an alien head motif. Branding accents are informed through the signature "Off The Wall" tongue tag at the back and it all sits atop of a waffle outsole.
