“Crafted in collaboration with Japanese artist and Vault by Vans designer Taka Hayashi, the Vans Pro Skate ArcAd Powell Peralta x TH collection commemorates a decades-long legacy of innovation in skateboarding, showcasing unforgettable imagery from Powell Peralta’s signature skate deck graphics archive. The capsule breathes life back into memorable illustrations such as the 1985 Future Primitive logo, Bones fonts, and the principal skull and sword graphics for which Powell Peralta is known.

Featuring elevated renditions of the Caballero Pro ArcAd and the Style 138 Pro ArcAd and limited to only 600 pairs worldwide, the capsule pays apropos tribute to the team that forever changed the face of competitive skateboarding in the 80s, the Bones Brigade, celebrating members such as Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Rodney Mullen, Tommy Guerrero and Jesse Martinez.

Known for his sharp attention to detail and premium material executions, Taka Hayashi reimagines his favorite Powell Peralta motifs on the Caballero Pro ArcAd and Style 138 Pro ArcAd. The Style 138 Pro includes a Powell Peralta Experimental tonal screen print on quarter panel, the Future Primitive logo embroidery on heel, and a woven Experimental crest & TH tongue label.

As one his favorite brands since childhood, Hayashi reminisces, “One of the first Powell Peralta boards I purchased was a Skull & Sword Ray “Bones” Rodriguez, created by Vernon Courtlandt Johnson, an artist I looked up to. I must have been ten years old at the time. I went in to Rip City Skate shop and was amazed with all the colors, graphics, and the unique shape of the boards, but that skull & sword really stood out to me.” This collection marks Taka Hayashi’s second Vans Pro Skate project, following the release of his 18th season of Vault by Vans designs this past September.”

Words via Vans:

“This fall, the world’s most iconic signature skateboarding shoe, the Vans Half Cab, celebrates 25 years of legendary skateboarding heritage. Originally released in 1992, the Half Cab represents an era of true design innovation. Constructed by street skaters in the early 90s by cutting the collar off the original Vans Caballero pro model and spawning the “lighter, better, faster” version of its predecessor, the iconic signature shoe for Steve Caballero has stood the test of time as a Vans Pro Skate favorite. The Half Cab has indisputably revolutionized performance skate progression, and still to this day, represents the leading-edge modifications in skateboarding footwear for which Vans has come to be known.

An icon in his own right with more than 45 years of influential skateboarding under his belt, from his tenure as part of the original Bones Brigade crew to his decades-long career as a pioneer of skateboarding from vert and park, to street and bowl, Vans honors legend Steve Caballero with the release of two exclusive Half Cab colorways in the token silver anniversary hue and classic black.

Highlighting premium pig suede uppers, metallic silver details, and a tonal embroidered “XXV” on the back heel for a commemorative touch, the 25th Anniversary Vans Half Cab is equipped with Vans Pro Skate’s signature Pro Classics performance innovation, featuring supportive ULTRACUSH HD sockliners for resilient cushioning and advanced comfort, and DURACAP reinforced underlays in high abrasion areas for premium durability and consistent fit.”

“Design and functional product feedback from our athletes has been critical to the evolution of Vans product development ever since Tony Alva asked for a shoe with additional padding to help him progress his skateboarding technique,” said Dave Solomon, Vans VP of Global Product, Footwear. “As Vans continues to grow, it’s essential that we continue to engage with the people that live our brand ethos and extend our products through innovative technology while maintaining Vans’ classic design to enable their daily pursuits.”

With a modern shape and new co-molded midsole, the UltraRange unveils Vans’ next generation of footwear technology, while paying homage to its rich history with the iconic Vans Sidestripe. The slim-profile, low-top design blends premium materials, breathable textiles, and a responsive sock-fit construction, empowering your adventure from the ground up.

UltraRange Features

  • Vans’ first-ever co-molded midsole merging UltraCush™ Lite foam cushioning with rubber inspired by Vans’ original waffle outsole for elevated comfort and versatility
  • LuxLiner™ internal sock-fit construction for seamless comfort
  • Vans’ reverse waffle lug offering superior grip and traction
  • Breathable, lightweight mesh upper for increased airflow and enhanced flex
  • Rapidweld stitchless construction for increased flexibility in high-abrasion areas while reducing pressure points on the foot

Vans x Supreme – 666 Slip-On Pro (6.15.17)

Sup666Slip1

This is kind of a weird one.  We’ve seen pairs of this Supreme Slip-On with the 666 graphic pop up on eBay a few times over the past few months, but no official info has been released by Supreme, at least not in the traditional sense, until today via their Instagram account.  This confirms that the release is official, and set to drop tomorrow in 3 colorways, Black, Checkerboard, and Blue, featuring the 666 “STP” graphic that has been seen on a myriad of Supreme product this season.  Are you in, or out with these?
