In early 1974, the punk scene began to rise to prominence. NYC clubs, such as CBGB & Max’s Kanas city, provided the stage for a series of quintessentially punk bands to take the NYC scene by storm. One band’s debut gig at CBGB’s was particularly memorable, setting the subversive tone for the rest of the decade.
Taking inspiration from that very first gig, U.K.-based retailer size? has teamed up with Vans to release a Sk8-Hi collaboration that mimics the band’s iconic outfits from that night.
Black leather, which can be found through the middle of the shoe, mirrors the leather jackets, while the Blue Denim and scuffed Jazz Stripe to each wall nods to the band’s famed skinny jeans. The striping to the tongue has been added to match those famous tees, and underfoot, a navy tab to the midsole marks the date of when the momentous gig took place.
