Grosso Forever: Loveletter to Jeff Grosso.

To pay tribute to skate legend, historian, gatekeeper, and beloved Vans family member Jeff Grosso, and to mark his birthday, Vans released a new Love Letters To Skateboarding episode solely featuring Jeff.

Vans’ special birthday episode of Love Letters to Skateboarding celebrates Jeff’s life, in his own words, and was compiled by long time co-creators, Buddy Nichols and Rick Charnoski of Six Stair Productions. The episode illustrates Jeff’s raw, authentic and often-opinionated take on skateboarding that was captured during a decade of filming the series.

To honor Jeff’s legacy, the Grosso Forever Collection leads with the Skate Sk8-Hi, featuring reissued colorways from important moments in his career. Supporting the shoe is an offering of special-edition Grosso Forever apparel showcasing artwork from two of Jeff’s longtime friends, Bryce Kanights and John Lucero, with royalties directed to Jeff’s son Oliver and his family.

The Grosso Forever Collection is now available at Vans Skateboarding retailers and
