Monday, February 10th, 2020

Vans presents the Rowan Pro, the latest Vans signature skate shoe from global team rider Rowan Zorilla, supported by his accompanying apparel collection. Available Worldwide on February 15.

The Rowan Pro features two new innovations specific to the Vans Pro Skate line. SickStick, a proprietary gum rubber compound that’s uniquely calibrated in the sole and foxing, delivers enhanced grip and maximum durability, making it the stickiest, grippiest gum sole in the brand’s history. In addition, PopCush—a brand-new foam recipe that’s meticulously tuned for impact protection—provides superior cushioning and increased energy return for less fatigue over the course of the day.

Duracap technology reinforces underlays in high-wear areas, adding unrivaled durability to prolong the life of the shoe.

His apparel collection includes an all-new black denim Drill Chore Coat and matching double-knee denim V96 Relaxed/RZ utility pant. With distinctive T-shirt graphics and a label pack designed in conjunction with talented artist Mike Lottie, the Rowan collection is a well-balanced combination of rugged functionality and accessible fashion.

adidas Superstar 80s by Blondey McCoy.

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

adidas Skateboarding enlists the talent of team rider and London-native, Blondey McCoy, to update a brand mainstay for Fall/Winter 2019. A young icon in the skateboarding, art and modeling realms, McCoy commemorates all four corners of Soho into the Superstar 80s design. The radical style pays homage to the city of punkish provocation where individualism is celebrated, and where true DIY attitudes and diverse creative energies exist.

Releasing alongside the model will be a trio of soccer-inspired socks, also designed by McCoy. A nod to his preferred riding kit—high socks and shorts—each pair folds under the knee and is printed with a custom River Thames graphic and three stripes branding. The blue colorway dons the text Picadilly & Oxford, while the red sports St. Giles & Cambridge—all circuses around the rider’s home district in Soho. The neutral white design carries a hero Blondey and adidas tag. Each pair of the hero Superstar 80s by Blondey colorway and its accompanying socks come in a custom adidas shoebox. The limited-edition product will be available on the adidas website and select retailers beginning on December 14th and will retail for $110.

Vans_The Rowley RapidWeld Pro.

Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

The Rowley RapidWeld Pro.  Marking the 20th anniversary of the original Rowley Pro release, the shoe delivers new technical updates, while staying true to its original DNA and aesthetic. With the Rowley RapidWeld Pro, Geoff wanted a WaffleCup outsole, which provides skateboarders the best of both worlds through vulcanized flick and board-feel in the forefoot, and support in the midfoot and heel. As its name suggests, the shoe also utilizes the Vans’ RapidWeld upper detailing – a stitchless construction for improved fit and feel, and seamless durability.

RapidWeld eliminates bulk with its advanced upper panel welding, utilizing a thin, heat-fused film between panels and replacing the need for conventional stitching. The technology forms an extremely strong bond, which is highly durable, flexible and lighter than traditional construction. A considerably slimmer tongue and refined ankle padding further reduce visual and physical bulk.

The shoe is built with Geoff’s favorite version of the Ultracushä HD sockliner, providing Vans’ highest level of impact cushioning without packing out over time. Duracap reinforced rubber underlays have been added in high-wear areas to provide lasting durability, with the goal of saving everyday skateboarders time and money. The Rowley RapidWeld Pro is now available at authorized Vans retailers. Learn more at Vans.eu/skate.
