Vans x Trap Skateboards – “Save The Wilhelmsburg Banks” Half Cab Pro (6.1.17)

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!

Vans Pro x Fucking Awesome – Epoch ’94 Pro (1.21.17) Available @silostore!

FUCKINGAWESOME_VANS-OVER

Vans and Fucking Awesome come together to release their latest collection, the Epoch ’94 Pro.  We’ve been anticipating these to drop for a little while now, and things have been kept under wraps ’til about last week.  Well, the flood gates are now open, and we’re getting a few good photos of the pack now.  There will be 3 colorways available at a very few select Vans Pro accounts, supposedly those who carry the Fucking Awesome line which seems fitting.  We haven’t seen the Epoch silhouette in awhile.  The Ray Barbee collab comes to mind!  The 3 colorways chosen for this release are black, white, and bright blue and feature debossed “Fucking Awesome” logos all over the shoe’s upper.  The first two colors sit on top of a white vulcanized sole, and the white pair has a navy foxing stripe, both featuring gum waffle soles, while the bright blue pair sits on a dark purple vulcanized sole, with clear waffle grip bottoms.  There’s also a custom box created for this release, which is always nice.  These will drop this Saturday, the 21st at Silo, and on their webstore, as well as at a few Vans Pro “Syndicate allocated” accounts, as stated before.

Vans Pro x SHOWROOM – Old Skool Pro & Sk8-Hi Pro (12.9.16)

showroom-vans-21-30-sk8-hi-old-skool-1

Words via Hypebeast:

“Kuala Lumpur’s SHOWROOM has joined forces with Vans for what’s being billed as a “first-of-its-kind” collaborative endeavor. Dubbed “21:30,” the two-piece collection takes on Pro editions of both the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool, transforming them with the nighttime skater in mind by adding the likes of reflective 3M material and Velcro sidestripes that allow the wearer to switch between stark white and Vans’ famed checkerboard motif for added versatility. And since the kicks come in Pro form, each retro silhouette sports modern upgrades like DURACAP technology and ULTRACUSH cushioning.  Capped off with some subtle co-branding and icy outsoles, the “21:30″ release is set to hit the Malaysian skate spot come December 9.”

Vans x Slam City – Native Pro & Lampin Pro (10.22.16) (Video)

Vans has teamed up with world-famous Slam City Skates to celebrate their 30th anniversary, and for this special occasion they worked on a Native Pro and Lampin Pro, both in tonal colorways.  The Native takes it’s inspiration from the Madrid Fly Paper model, featuring the same tonal black uppers, vulcanized soles, crescent moon toe bumpers, and ollie pad.  The Native came out in 1988, which was the same year that Slam City opened their first doors at their Covent Garden location.  For their second shoe, the Lampin Pro which debuted in 1993, they just wanted to pay homage to the early 90’s skate scene, which was considered the golden age of skateboarding.  They went with an entirely marshmallow colorway, with accentuating white laces.  Both feature Savage Pencil’s Flamehead logo, for that custom touch.  Both pairs will be releasing online, tomorrow morning at 9AM UTC on Slam City Skate’s webshop.
