With high performance, innovative skate footwear a continued focus for Vans, team rider Gilbert Crockett has unveiled the all new Crockett Pro 2 – a shoe packed full of the latest technologies with an eye on the past for design. Combining craft and science, Crockett draws inspiration from various era’s, most notably the 40’s & the 90’s, to inform the low profile shape and colour treatments, while Vans’ revolutionary Wafflecup unit, Ultracush HD drop-in sockliner and fully-fused Duracap upper adds durability, grip and cushioning for an improved ride.
To celebrate the release, Gilbert has dropped a minute and a half of visual goodness, hitting up the streets of his native Richmond, VA to put his new shoe to the test. You can pick up the the new Vans Crockett Pro 2 online, at Vans stores and at select retailers including Slam City Skates now.
