Just wanted to share this video of Bryan Chin from Masses Malaysia, of the Vault x Our Legacy Old Skool Pro ’92 LX. He first shared this video on the Strictly Waffles FB group, but it’s really good, entertaining, funny, and he calls the Vans models by their actual names! Take notes all you young cats doing sneaker vids online. Our Vans community will put you on blast for stuff like that! Great video Bryan!
Check out this video clip by Masses, featuring an interview by Under The Palms Malaysia’s Izam Shariman, and a few nice shots of the sneaker display that surely helped spread the word about the Vans sneaker collecting culture there in Malaysia. I can’t translate the interview for you, but you can at least check out the cool visuals. I can’t thank you enough Izam, for representing UTP across the Pacific!
Excerpt from FOG:
“What is the value of a shoe? On October 10, 2016 Jerry Lorenzo and his staff at Fear of God loaded two trucks of what were meant to be “influencer” promotional clothing and shoes, with bottles of water to hand out to Los Angeles’ homeless at Skid Row.”
Glad to see that these pairs went to the homeless, instead of a few “influencers”, but for some reason I think a bunch of people will be heading down to Skid Row looking for this gear, trying to make offers. If you start seeing a bunch of random pairs showing up at any downtown LA consignment shops, you know where they most likely came from!
Check out this little ripper Sky Brown! 8 years old to be exact, and already competing against the big girls. There’s a ton of videos of her and her bro out there on the internet, so I’ll save you the back story. Just wanted to show some love to her awesomeness!
Red Bull has this really cool video series called The Ripple Effect, where they feature different brands in the action sports world, and for episode 2 of their inaugural season, they featured our beloved Vans. This is hands down one of the most thoroughly entertaining and knowledgeable videos about Vans’ history, their identity, and their vision. Sit back and enjoy this 23 minute video, featuring some familiar friendly faces!
The midnight hours burn and the the streets yearn for a “Night Ride Out.” The Vans x Leader Bikes collaboration focuses on the shadows of the streets, the mystery of the midnight hour ride, who is to say you can only go out during the day. Fitted with the new reflective Vans apparel, you can be seen in the mystery of the night while out riding. No city sleeps, who knows who you could be riding with next while on a Night Ride Out.
Leader x Vans products would be available on May 13th. 2016 in Japan and May 21st. in USA.
Asia Premier tour for full movie is going to be May 13th. in Seoul, 14th. in Tokyo and 16th. in Osaka.

Saint Alfred has teamed up with Vans Vault to release two special Old Skool LX’s, in an interesting Resin Coated Canvas, which will be available in either Turtledove, or Blue Depth. St. Alfred chose to go with lace eyelets, and all white vulc soles. Right now, we only have a few teaser vids, but expect more info and hopefully some official pics to come soon.
