Vans celebrates international Women's Day with a collection of footwear and apparel for women and all those who support them. Vans are a staple in skate culture and street style, and this skate sneaker is no exception. Introduced in the early 70's, the Vans SK8 Hi was responsible for the reduced number of ankle injuries in the skating scene with the extra padded ankle support, but its popularity has grown across different cultural scenes. The Vans Divine Energy SK8 Hi is constructed with durable black leather uppers, padded collars and features the signature side stripe. Partnered with our signature Vans waffle outsole.
