I believe its about a years ago that Vans retroed the classic Sk8-Hi Hosoi. As some of you will know, Christian Hosoi was a legendary skateboarder back in the days that got into drugs and finally got busted for trafficking with intent to distribute. In jail he found Jesus and now he runs his own brand: Hosoi Skateboards whos team include fellow Christian and former Nike SB rider Richard Mulder. If you want to know more about Hosoi check out Rising Son, a documentary about his life. Vans honors Hosoi with a second version of his Sk8-Hi with a slightly different interpertation of the famous Rising Sun graphic. Release is expected in Spring 2008.
