Vans – Half Cab Pro “20th Anniversary” – Mofo (June 2012)

It’s a new month, and that means it’s time to see the next Half Cab to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the beloved shoe, created by legend himself, Steve Caballero.  For June, we start getting into the artist series, co-designed by respected artists, and photographers, like this pair designed by Mörizen Föche, better known as Mofo.  If you’ve never heard of him before, then it may be interesting to know that he was one of the guys who started Thrasher Magazine, taking on the responsibilities of photographer, photo editor, and graphic designer.  The reason he was given the opportunity to design one of the few 20th Anniversary Half Cab’s is because, well, you see that iconic Half Cab silhouette on the side and tongue of every pair you have?  That’s Steve Caballero.  Oh, and that was taken from an original photo that MoFo shot, so yeah, he had a major part in the shoe’s iconic “image”.  Literally.

The shoe is constructed entirely in black suede, while sitting on top of a white vulcanized sole with black foxing stripe.  Being that this is a Pro model, it features the Duracap reinforced toe, and the removable padded sock liner.  For this release, we get to see the new Pro heel tab utilized, which is a small, but awesome new feature.  The Half Cab logos were given a more photo-like appearance, to commemorate MoFo, and his contribution to the skateboarding world.  This is an awesome tribute, and I’m looking forward to see the rest as the year moves on!  These are now starting to show up at your local Vans stores, and select Vans accounts
