2019 sees Vans bring forward a multitude of collaborations, heritage inspired collections and the first Elijah Berle pro range. Continuous improvements and upgrades have been made across core silhouettes, including material experimentation across the Kyle Walker and Gilbert Crockett Pro models. As the first signature Elijah Berle style arrivals, three colourways have been introduced with new WaffleControl engineering, which captures the Santa Monica skater’s roots and personal taste, in addition to looking ahead to the future of skate focused footwear. Following this, the Vans x Anti Hero project paid homage to four skating icons - John Cardiel, Chris Pfanner, Jeff Grosso and Tony Trujillo - across selective pro models with additional attributes that individually highlighted each skater.

Representing the international connection that comes with skateboarding, the second capsule release between Vans and Sydney based Pass Port arrived in April, inspired by ‘Fitzy Plaza’  located in Edinburgh Gardens, Melbourne. Two limited edition footwear designs reintroduce Vans’ Sid Pro style from the ‘90s with an all over brickwork pattern set within the suede upper.

Drawing attention closer to Vans’ origins, the colourful ‘Candy Stripe’ range from the on-going Anaheim Factory Pack gives recognition to their first factory located in Anaheim, Southern California through the use of original style numbers, colour tones and cotton twill linings as now-vintage collections.

Few brands in skateboarding can claim such legacy as Vans; the Californian born company is synonymous with the laid-back skate vibe, which of course is something that is embedded deep in their origins. The first Vans store opened its doors in 1966, founded by none other than brothers Paul and Jim Van Doren. Originally the Van Doren Rubber company, known for creating #44 deck shoes which later became the Authentic and was re-released as the Vans Authentic 44 DX Anaheim Factory, which emulated the original.

Continually pushing new pro footwear, whilst also keeping their classics contemporary with a selection of Vans Pro Skate Classics comprised of the Vans Authentic, Old Skool, Half Cab, Sk8-Hi and the Slip-On. Vans encompass modern, innovative footwear technology through their original WaffleControl, Wafflecup, Duracap and UltraCush features.
