Happy 35th Anniversary “OFF THE WALL”!

Words via theothersideofthepillow:

“On this day, 35 years ago, a pioneering collaboration spear-headed a skateboard revolution that would change the world of action sports forever.  March 18th 1976 saw Vans release their 1st forray into official skateboarding history, in that of their signature footwear line “off the wall”.  Coined from slang utilized by Santa Monica skateboarders in reference to their “off the wall” exploits in emptied local pools, and school ground concrete banks.  The phrase has taken on greater significance in extreme sports, not to mention the significance of which it had on vans footwear history.”
