Born in 1966 to cater to SoCal skaterats, Vans are still hard at work, refining the skate shoe more than 50 years later. In partnership with Quasi Skateboards, the brand have just launched a new collection of performance-ready kicks in the form of the ArcAd collection. Featuring both the newly-introduced Gilber Crockett Pro 2 and Slip-On Lite, this collection is retro in appearance but heavy on incognito tech.
The shoes are equipped with modern performance upgrades, including Ultracush HD insoles for maximum shock absorption and Wafflecup outsoles for superior grip. Quasi's signature boom pattern adorns the uppers, but that touch isn't just there for stylistic consideration. The one-piece woven jacquard uppers are interlaced with Rapidweld layers for added durability and flexibility.
Available in both black and blue colourways, each comes bundled as a twin pack in a double-drawer box, together with a matching backpack.
The Vans Pro Skate ArcAd collection is in select stores now. Hit up your local skate shop for the plug on this one!
