Vans Pro – 50th Anniversary Sk8-Hi Pro ’91 Coors Light (Available at @silostore on 9.17.16)


Beer drinkers unite!  The Vans 50th Anniversary celebration continues, this time with a familiar collaboration from decades ago.  You’ve seen vintage pairs of Coors Light Vans in the past, but they’ve always been the Era models, but never have you seen a Sk8-Hi model until now.  Vans has linked up with Coors again, to create this Sk8-Hi Pro ’91, but there’s a unique back story to this design, as with most of the “Syndicate allocated” 50th Anniversary Pro releases.  After reading a few comments on @natescrappy_vans50tharchive Instagram account, I learned that this design is an exact replica of a pair that Steve Van Doren created for Jeff Grosso back in 1991.  It was a one-off, and no other original Made In USA pairs exist.  Jeff even commented on said Instagram post that “they were the best shoes he ever owned”.  I can’t see these staying around very long, but if you put in some work online, you might be able to score a pair from Silo, or your local Vans Pro account this weekend.

Thanks to Silo and Nates Crappy Vans 50th Archive for the borrowed pics!
