As Vans continue to go all out to celebrate 50 years as one of the most iconic footwear brands of all time, they draw inspiration from their archives with a special Pro Classic Anniversary Collection, which sees 4 classic silhouettes updated with Pro performance features.
The Vans Era, Slip-On, Old Skool Mid and Authentic are presented in their signature colour options for the release, which also sees the iconic checkerboard patterns and Hawaiian prints applied to the upper of the Slip-On Pro and Authentic Pro respectively. Each style features functional 'Pro' upgrades to deal with the rigours of modern skateboarding, including ULTRACUSH HD sock-liners for comfort and cushioning upon impact, and DURACAP reinforced underlays in high abrasion areas for added durability and protection for the foot.
The chosen silhouettes each have their own story to tell and is informed by it's original year of release, from the first shoe designed specifically for skateboarders to a style symbolic of rebellion and counterculture in music. To this day Vans continue to have the same influence on youth culture that they have done since 1966 as they stick closely to the values that have made the brand what it is.
The Vans Pro Classics Anniversary Collection is available now. Head to www.vans.co.uk for more.
