Vans Skate SK8-Hi Decon Punk & Yo Black/Black
Founded by longtime Vans Skateboarding team rider Etienne Gagne and friend and graphic designer Anthony Asfour, Punkandyo is grounded in the concept of not living within the confines of skateboarding, fashion, or the surrounding culture. Pulling from the brand’s roots in skateboarding subculture and the nostalgia of their childhood, Punkandyo’s vision for the Sk8-Hi® Decon comes to life across an all-black palette of elevated suede and canvas, with an ice grey contrast stitch. The inspiration behind the colorway reflects Punkandyo’s ethos for an everyday, wearable silhouette that still pushes the boundaries of design.
Custom details include a P&Y hang flag, embossed foxing featuring Punkandyo’s website, and a P&Y debossed heel counter graphic. Adding a pop of color, the shoelaces are offered in a bright gecko green in addition to a muted black and white option, matching back to the custom Vans Checkerboard hang flag and heel scab. Tying it all together, the laces and foxing feature Punkandyo’s signature brand font.
