I am about to go see the legendary Bad Brains play tonight with the GZA , needless to say I am beyond siked. To celebrate this momentous occasion I am posting this Vans SK8 Hi’s that they made in collaboration with Supreme and the Bad Brains. Seller tenplusonenyc has these for sale in a size 9, dead stock brand new in the original box. The BIN price isn’t that crazy but you might be able to scoop these for less if you just bid at the last minute.

Seller saspurs73 has got a pair of Sk8 Hi Bad Brains edition Vans up for grabs. 13 Hours left.
Seller hornsonhigh has this pair of Van’s SK8-HI’s made in collaboration with iconic street wear brand Supreme and the legendary punk/hardcore band Bad Brains. These are size 9 deadstock in the box . The seller could have taken some better photos but I am familiar with these sneakers so I can provide a little better description. They have P.M.A.( positive mental attitude) embroidered on the outside toe part of the shoe and the words “Coptic” on the left heel and “Times” across the right heel. The seller started this auction off very low and the BIN is way cheaper then all the others pairs that are currently up for auction. He also is selling another pair on these in yellow in the same size with the same BIN.
Seller ktmayer has the complete set of the 2009 Bad Brains collabo with Vans. This full set includes three kicks, The VANS Sk8 Hi, Chukka, and an Era. All three of the shoes have different designs. The Era has the Lion of Judah design that was on a ton of Bad Brains shirts and is also put on the sole (which isn’t on the ebay pictures), the Sk8 hi has a new spin on the design of the ROIR cassette and the Chukka, which definitely looks the cleanest out of the three has the rasta colorway with a yellow lightning bolt on the outside of the shoe. Give it up for the Four Baddest Brothers from D.C. and check out this auction.
Awesome. Just awesome. The Bad Brains are OGs to the game. If you don’t know the Bad Brains, you are missing out. They’ve influenced every artist and band you like. They played gigs with the Beastie Boys and the Cro-Mags in the 80s, Public Enemy in the 90s, and then Cro-Mags again in the 2Ks. Their brand of hardcore is fast and punishing, but the songs are full of PMA. The gigs are a sight to behold. Especially now. HR is out there … real far out there.
These sneakers dropped in the spring of 2009 and were quickly snapped up. Seller orca2010 has all the goodies still. Extra laces, the cloth bag, the sharp box. Everything looks good. If these are your size, I suggest scooping.
What can I say about this that can’t already be said just by reading the title. thecoolshoeshine is selling an extremely limited pair of Vans. Yes Vans and the almighty Bad Brains got together with Supreme to give you a little history lesson. The Bad Brains are the founders of Hardcore music, Vans are the founders of the modern skateboard shoe and Supreme is a pioneer in NYC boutique Skate shops that spawned a world wide fashion brand and trend setter. These shoes are so fucking awesome I just don’t know what else to say.
