Rad Collector - Western Edition x Vans
There was a bit of a stir a little while back when the pics surfaced of these sick, sick Western Edition Sk8 Hi’s. A lot of people, including some of those close to the brand, didn’t know how they came to be. Turns out they were done by RAW skater Nate Keegan’s homie Hush, who took apart a pair of Sk8-Hi’s and meticulously reconstructed them into the WE 10th anniversary tribute joints you see above. Check out some more of Nate’s pair after the jump. These are 1 of 2 – the only other pair went to WE’s Ian Johnson, who created the graphic. Via Re1000.

Check out some of their shapes after the jump, including their penis shaped deck, the Planche Bite. Via Skate and Annoy.
