Vans x Frog Skate Old Skool Shoes in Black. A creative collaboration between Anaheim’s Vans and the creative Frog Skateboards, these rehashed Old Skool skate shoes deliver playful vibes that tap into both brand’s endless commitment to the sport. Mixed material suede and durable canvas construct the low-profile uppers for increased resiliency, while the all-black rubber outsole and colour-matched foxings elevates the profile with its deep-set character and distinctly urban appeal. Vans’ signature Waffle outsole delivers exemplary traction and grip from first wear, while the rugged and resilient auxetic-shape overlay across the toe-bumper delivers additional abrasion reinforcement as and where it’s needed. Vans’ iconic side-wall stripe has been playfully reimagined with full-colour icons in a silicone charm side stripe inspired by Frog’s fun-loving character, while the crisp-white flat laces secure the tongue across the nature arch of the foot with ease. The padded ankle collar wraps around the cuff for increased structural support, while the classic rubber heel-tab on the rear has been energetically uplifted in a neon shade of green to honour Frog’s aptly titled namesake.
Famed for their lo-fi edits featuring the likes of Vans favourites Rowan Zorilla, Brighton Zeuner and Dustin Henry, fun-loving Frog Skateboards becomes the latest brand to join the endless rosta of Vans collaborators. Launched by Jesse Alba and known for their unrestrained graphics and odes to creative culture, Frog is a brand that never ceases to deliver when it comes to against-the grain aesthetics backed by artistic expression.
