The latest signature model for famed team-rider Gilbert Crockett, these after-dark monochrome Crockett High Pro shoes from Vans bring a sense of shadowed skate-specificity to the iconic high-cut silhouette. Styled with both butter-smooth suede and textile-trimmed uppers, these skate shoes are fitted with Vans’ exclusive sickStick Pro Skate rubber compound for added durability, whilst the DURACAP reinforced rubber underlays and the fully-moulded PopCush Pro footbed offers superior boardfeel across any highly energised skate style. Elasticated tongue-centering straps help keep the off-white flat laces securely fastened against the high-rise ‘Gilbert Crocket’ commemorative tongue label, whilst the double-track stitching across the toe vamp and midfoot bring added resilience to high-stress flex spots. Vans’ iconic side-stripe is blended seamlessly to the design in a white-trimmed shade of black leather, whilst the metallic-black ventilation eyelets, the woven black and white ‘Vans’ collar tab and the classic ‘Off The Wall’ red-rubber branding across the base of the heel help seal these statement skate-shoes off inline with Crockett’s famed fast-paced personality.
Joining the Vans team in 2009 and turning pro in 2012, evolutionary skater Gilbert Crockett has welcomed a number of influential signature profiles with the brand over his 11 year stint. With both a low and high-collared silhouette to his name, and known for his parts in Thrasher’s ‘Gospel’, Quasi’s ‘Mother’ and Vans’ 2015-released ‘Propeller’, Crockett continues to conquer the skate scene with his admiration for all-things vintage and his undying passion for the sport.
