A collaborative release that pairs Chad Bowers’ Quasi with skatewear powerhouse Vans, these true white and surf the web cooloured Crockett High Pros arrive as an active celebration of both the brand's creativity and famed pro-skater Gilbert Crockett’s iconic signature silhouette. Styled with DURACAP reinforced uppers crafted from a combination of durable suede and resilient cotton-canvas, these performance-minded high top sneakers are further enhanced by the use of a fully rubberised cupsole and Vans’ game-changing Wafflecup outsole. Superior boardfeel and multi-directional traction are adhered to from first wear and actively supported through the use of traditional vulcanised techniques and the reinstated UltraCush HD sockliner, whilst the wear-resistant toe-bumper trims ensures a premium level of impact resistance is adhered to regardless of setting. Crisp-white over extended foxing tape wraps around the entirety of the profile above the midfoot to complement all high-stress areas, whilst the creamy-toned overlays and the bold-blue sidewall trims are matched with stark-white bartack stitchings for a refined finish that honours Quasi’s ode to clean-lined aesthetics. A recessed 7-eyelet flat lacing system secures the ‘Vans x Gilbert Crockett’ branded tongue across the arch of the foot, while the innovative positioning of two metallic ventilation eyelets across the interior-facing sidewall promotes active circulatory comfort when paired with any active skate style. Commemorative ‘Quasi’ embroidered heel-strips joins the bright-red ‘Off The Wall’ heel stamp to the classic ‘Vans’ branded ankle collar for a sleek sign-off inspired by old-school militaria and blue-collar workwear.
A collaboration that follows in the footsteps of the earlier released Epoch Sport Pro from both Quasi and Vans, these signature Crockett High Pro Shoes are designed with an active intention of preserving original retro aesthetics and skate-specific function in its rawest form. Inspired by militaria, ageless utilitarian undertones and all three party’s commitment to sport, these rehashed skate shoes are set to complement any energetic skate setting with ease.
