Designed in collaboration with revered Japanese artist and Vault by Vans designer Taka Hayashi, the Vans Pro Skate ArcAd Santa Cruz x TH collection celebrates decades of classic design heritage to honor some of the most renowned skateboarding mottos and motifs of all time including Santa Cruz’s bold slogan, “Skateboarding Is Not A Crime.” Santa Cruz Skateboards remains a pioneer of the industry, having created the most cherished deck graphics in skateboarding history since the early 80s.

Blending Taka Hayashi’s meticulous craftsmanship of premium materials and bespoke embroidery detailing, the Santa Cruz Pro x TH Skate capsule showcases an Old Skool Pro ArcAd and Chukka Pro ArcAd in rich leather and suede iterations, highlighting original artwork by Hayashi and logos by Santa Cruz Skateboards.

Inspired by skateboarding culture throughout his childhood, Hayashi remarks, “Santa Cruz’s endless archive of awesome skateboard graphics, logos, and fonts that defined the 80’s skateboarding scene left a huge impact on me as an artist and a skater. I really looked up to their style and artists like Jim Phillips, whose signature artwork continues to inspire me to this day.” This collection marks Taka Hayashi’s first-ever Vans Pro Skate project, following the release of his 18th season of Vault by Vans designs this past September.
