Damn Daniel, get a load of that box! Celebrating 50 years in the shoe game, the OG Cali skate rats over at Vans have revisited an assortment of the brand's most beloved silhouettes with a healthy dose of improved tech to bring us the Pro Classic 50th Anniversary Collection. Models like the Sk8-Hi, Era , Chukka and Authentic (pictured above) have all been updated on the sly with ULTRACUSH HD Cushioning on the inside and DURACAP Reinforcement up front, making for some seriously skate-able footwear. The Collection also sees the return of the rarely seen Full Cab, the grandaddy to the chopped-down Half Cab and definitely the most surprising inclusion in the line-up. Vans were rad enough to send a pair of Authentic Pros from the collection to us in a sweet laser-engraved 'mini-ramp' box (pictured above) to make the announcement. You best believe we've spent the better half of the day scouting the 'Bay for Tech Decks to tackle that bad boy!
The Vans Pro Classic 50th Anniversary Collection is available right now through Van stockists worldwide.
