Hong-Kong based streetwear MADNESS has teamed with Vans for a footwear collection featuring the SK8-Hi and the SK8-Mid silhouettes. The small collection combines the simplicity of Vans silhouettes with MADNESS founder Shawn Yue’s fine sense of style.
Both kicks feature grey and blue full suede upper creating a unique two tone effect in two colorways – a monochromatic light gray upper with a white midsole, and a black and Prussian blue upper with a black midsole Other subtle details include the quotation “all work and no play makes you mad” printed on the midsoles – a line from a tattoo on Shawn’s hand inspired by the movie the shining. The Vans x MADNESS collection will prelaunch at the MADNESS Beijing Shop and online store on February 11. A wider release will take place at select Vans stores in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, Japan and Taiwan on February 18.
