Quasi x Vans_New Crockett High Pro.

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020

Quasi x Vans collaboration launching September 24 at select skate shops, and featuring two fresh colorways of the Crockett High Pro and a vintage utilitarian tote.

The Crockett High Pro elevates Gilbert’s classic pro model, transforming it into a high-top for enhanced performance, with early 20th century basketball and military boot inspired lines. The two new Quasi colorways – true white/surf the web and black/blue — give a nod to Crockett’s love for thrifting, art, and vintage style.

Reinforcing a retro athletic look, the puffy mesh and true-blue hits of the true white/surf the web colorway illustrates a ‘70s sporty materialization. The Crocket High Pro in black/blue references military origins as well as vintage Vans high-tops for a more traditional materialization.

Both colorways boast Vans Pro Skate technical features, including DURACAP-reinforced suede and canvas uppers, UltraCush HD sockliner for high-level impact cushioning, and Wafflecup construction for cupsole support without sacrificing the grip and boardfeel of a traditional vulcanized shoe.

The Crocket High Pro and Quasi tote bag is available worldwide on September 24, 2020, at select Vans Pro Skate shops. For more information, visit Vans.eu/skate.

Vans x Shake Junt Collection.

Thursday, August 20th, 2020

Vans is paying tribute to Shake Junt and the iconic mark the brand has made on skateboarding with a new collection, influenced by shared team riders Kader Sylla, Dustin Dolllin, Rowan Zorilla, and Kyle Walker. Available globally in August globally at authorized Vans Skate retailers and Vans.eu/skate, the Vans x Shake Junt collection features an exclusive new colorway for the Kyle Pro 2, Old Skool Pro, Slip-On Pro and Era Pro, plus a range of apparel pieces.

Leading the collection is the new Kyle Walker Pro 2 in forest/gold, packed with tech features for high impact skateboarding, including WaffleCup for boardfeel and support, PopCush for cushioning, and Duracap for added durability. Shake Junt’s DNA shines through in the money-green suede uppers and gold Sidestripe.

The Slip-On Pro in black/gold features metallic gold leather in the quarter, a black/gold heel scab, and an embossed “Shake Junt” on the sole.

The Era Pro in black/white rounds out the footwear offering, serving up a classic Shake Junt print.

 

The Old Skool Pro in black/white showcases a string of 3D glowing lights along the Sidestripe, Shake Junt’s signature green/gold trims and details throughout, and custom “Get Buck!” eyelets.

 

The Kyle Walker Pro 2.

Thursday, July 16th, 2020

Style, function, and most importantly, “made for skaters” are the founding principles behind the Kyle Walker Pro 2 and apparel pack, designed through Kyle’s perspective to arrive at a truly fresh, clean slip-on skate shoe packed with features and paying homage to the people and places that have shaped him.

For the Kyle Walker Pro 2, Kyle specifically requested WaffleCup technology, the best combination of vulcanized flick and boardfeel in the forefoot, support in the midfoot and heel, and rugged durability. Add to that equation PopCush, the highest level of impact cushioning with better energy return, and Duracap’s extra reinforcement.

The Kyle Walker collection includes a flannel, pullover hoodie, Off The Wall LS tee, classic SS tee, belt and denim. Drawing inspiration from Kyle’s home state flower, the Kyle Walker Classic SS tee features the Oklahoma Rose over large printed Vans typeface in elegant font, while the Kyle Walker PO hoodie features the same graphic as a chest logo with white/black Checkerboard in the waist and sleeve cuffs. To push the limits as much as he does skating, Kyle’s apparel has to perform just as well, which is why his denim was created with Cone SGene for unrivaled stretch and recovery.

The Kyle Walker Pro 2 and Kyle Walker apparel collection will be available at skate shops worldwide, Vans.eu/skate and Vans retail stores on July 30th.

Vans x Hockey Presents the Authentic High Pro Inspired by Andrew Allen.

Friday, April 17th, 2020

Authentic High Pro, featuring an UltraCush footbed for superior support and boardfeel, and Duracap technology to reinforce underlays in critical high-wear areas prolonging the life of the shoe.

The hero colorway is an elevated cotton sateen and cotton twill upper with an external vulcanized rubber ollie patch. The heel scab logo receives a “shattered” treatment reminiscent of Hockey’s signature style, while the shoe’s interior is embroidered with Andrew’s name in his own handwriting.

 A rudimentary make-shift graphic — a relic from previous Vans designs — appears throughout the collection, with a sly addition that bears a striking resemblance to the pro skater.

The Authentic High Pro in Andrew Allen Hockey black and Vans x Hockey L/S and S/S shirt are now available at the below select Pro Skate LTD retailers. For more information, visit vans.eu/skate

Brighton Zeuner_Vans Footwear and Apparel Pack

Thursday, April 9th, 2020

At just 15 years old, Brighton Zeuner is a force to be reckoned with. The two-time Vans park terrain skateboarding world champion serves as inspiration to young skaters everywhere in the face of a male-dominated professional skateboarding landscape.

Vans is celebrating Brighton’s distinct style and penchant for creative self-expression with the introduction of the Brighton Zeuner Old Skool Pro, a new colorway in the Vans Classics lineup, as well as an apparel pack, all designed under the direction of Brighton’s distinctive, color-driven ethos.

 

The Brighton Zeuner Old Skool Pro features extra tough, tech-driven attributes that Vans Pro Skate is known for. A suede-and-canvas upper receives custom Brighton Zeuner embroidery treatment, while Duracap technology delivers reinforced underlays in high-wear areas, creating an unrivaled level of durability that prolongs the life of the shoe. PopCush – a brand-new foam recipe—makes the shoe meticulously tuned for impact protection, superior cushioning and better energy return.

The pack also includes the Brighton baby tee, cami body suit, BF hoodie, skirt, and Authentic Pro Pant, plus the Brighton bucket hat, low-height crew sock, and colorblock backpack. Each are adorned with intricate detailing, including embroidery of her childhood signature and a bright floral pattern – inspired by a doodle in her gradeschool notebook— and rubberized heel tab patch.

 

The Vans Brighton Zeuner Old Skool Pro and apparel pack, available at Vans.eu from April 16th.

Nike SB X Isle Skateboards_Blazer Mid.

Tuesday, March 31st, 2020

After leaving legendary British board company, Blueprint, Nick Jensen and Paul Shier created Isle, a skate brand that elevates the approach on everything from board graphics to videos like 2015’s “Vase” done with Atlantic Drift’s Jacob Harris.

With the Isle Blazer, they combined the classic, raw feel of the London streets with a fine art aesthetic, bringing a patch-based off of a cyanotype by Nick. “The blue eye (on the patch) expresses a skater’s unique perspective on the city.”
