Following on from his recently released High Pro silhouette earlier this year, honoured team-rider Gilbert Crockett welcomes a refreshing hedge-green and dark-gum colourway to Vans’ exclusive Gilbert Crockett 2 Pro Shoes. Combining mixed-material brushed-suede uppers with Vans’ iconic Wafflecup construction, reinforced DURACAP rubber underlays and a traction-enhanced rubberised outsole, these low-cut skate shoes deliver the very best in boardfeel and structured response. A removable and fully-moulded UltraCush Pro footbed delivers exemplary cushioning and impact protection as and when it is required, whilst the seamed ventilation eyelets and reinforced heel area provide additional support and circulatory comfort from first wear. Vans’ traditional side-seam trims appear in a neatly defined shade of crisp-white above embroidered ‘Vans’ tab detailing, whilst the recessed 6-eyelet lacing system lies flush against the padded ‘Gilbert Crockett’ embroidered tongue. Creamy-white leather trims can be seen across the rear of the cushioned ankle collar, whilst the stark-white ‘Off The Wall’ heel stamp pairs neatly with the dark gum-brown outsole for a pop of contemporary colour.
Skating alongside the Vans team since his appointment in 2009, influential pro-skater Gilbert Crockett has continued to deliver countless collaborative designs during his 11 year stint with the Californian crew. Known for his appearances in Thrasher’s ‘Gospel’, Vans’ ‘Propeller’ and fun-loving Quasi’s ‘Mother’ short-form, Crockett is a skater that knows no boundaries when it comes to fast-paced footing and undeniable skate presence.
