Trap_x_Vans_HalfCab_by_kane-1

For the 25th anniversary of the Half Cab, Vans has partnered up with Trap Skateboards to create a unique shoe to help save the Wilhelmsburg Banks skatepark.  The shoe features design influenced by the famous mosaic tiled quarter pipe wall at Wilhelmsburg Banks, contrasting against deep burnt sienna suede.  The shoe features all the usual Pro features we’re accustomed to.

Strictly Waffles mentions the significance of this release:

“Wilhelmsburg Banks is one of the most famous skate spots in all of Germany. The beautiful terracotta tiling and Hamburg setting makes for one of the more memorable skate sessions you can have in Europe. Unfortunately, the park is in danger of being closed and demolished forever. There is a movement to stop this from happening. If you would like more info on how to get involved, head over to Save Wilhelmsburg Banks on Instagram.”

The Trap Skateboards x Save the Wilhelmsburg Banks Half Cab Pro releases today in Los Angeles, at Supreme, and will release in Europe on Saturday June 10th.  The shoe is limited to 200 pairs globally, so don’t sleep if you want these!
