Vans Old Skool Sport Pro capsule by Alltimers


Another banger from Alltimers. Teaming up with Vans, the high-spirited skate crew look to a future where the planet has been overrun by weird Alien forces attacking the masses with giant lasers to inform one of the most unique takes on the Old Skool Pro.

Both brands play an influential role in the modern scene and the union continues to push skateboarding forward. The all new Old Skool Sport Pro brings the Cali giants in to the VIP lounge with premium new material applications which include mesh, cotton webbing and reflective binding. Arriving in a popping blue with yellow detailing, as well as a crisp white and purple colour option, both pairs have been fully kitted out with all the functionality you'd expect. The Vans Ultracush HD footbeds not only offer unrivalled cushioning but come with added custom artwork for the special release. The lateral Duracap underlays in high abrasion areas offer protection and durability, while a custom ghillie lacing system sandwiched between the mesh, locks the foot in place. 

Be sure not to miss out on this one, the Vans Old Skool Sport Pro capsule by Alltimers will be available from select Vans Pro Skate retailers worldwide and this Saturday the 24th of June.





Vans x Patta “Mean Eyed Cat” Old Skool Collection


 Resurrecting their coveted "Mean Eyed Cat" collab from 2015, Patta and Vans come together to present two new colour ways of the reworked Old Skool for a larger global release. 

 When Patta, Vans and BEAMS first combined on the triple black limited edition pair 2 years ago, only a select few were able to get their hands on a pair of the Japanese exclusives. Maintaining the bold Patta logo print on to the side panels and the “Mean Eyed Cat” text on the midsole, the shoe is now offered up in tonal “True White” or “Black Coffee” colour options this season. Each shoe is detailed with a soft leather jazz stripe, constructed from a premium suede and canvas mix on the upper and finally come complete with custom 'Team Patta' laces. 

 The Vans x Patta “Mean Eyed Cat” Old Skool Collection will be dropping at the brands Amsterdam and London locations on May 27th, and Patta’s webstore on May 29th.





Vans x Dime AW16 Capsule


Almost a year to the day since Vans and Dime unveiled their popular Slip-On Pro model to the world, the pair come together once again to present a new three-piece capsule, which sees reworks of the classic Old Skool and the lesser known Fairline model. 

Starting with the popular 90's silhouette, the Fairline looses some of its iconic bulky look, stripped out from the inside out and updated with performance features to help combat the rigours of today’s uncompromising action sports standards. Arriving in a "Dream Blue", the icy rework features a tonal puffy sidestripe on the side panels and custom moulded Dime logo on the tongue, with a hardwearing suede applied to the entirety of the upper. All of this sits on top of a Vans’ Pro Lite Cupsole construction and Vans’ Ultracush HD sockliner to ensure a comfortable ride. Rounding off the capsule is two clean takes of the ever popular Old Skool Pro silhouette, offered up in a 'Marshmallow White" and "Blue Nights" colour options, both pairs feature tonal branding and stark white lacing, which compliment the mid sole. All three pairs feature translucent outsoles, with Dime branding on the bottom of the Old Skools.

 Bryan, Warehouse Manager of Dime had this to say on the release...

 ‘’We are overjoyed that the good folks at Vans let us bring back their timeless Fairlane silhouette for this project. Intense physical activity can really make your feet sweat and it’s important to stay cool. The objective here was to build the iciest kicks ever,”

 The Vans x Dime AW16 Capsule will be landing at select European retailers on October 8th, including Welcome Skate Store and Slam City Skates
