Vault by Vans and London Undercover Unveil Stylish Rain Proof Accessories For Holiday Vans brings creative expression to limited-edition umbrellas and Sk8-Hi’s for a unique collaboration
Vault by Vans joins forces with British-based luxury accessories designer, London Undercover this holiday season to transform the functional umbrella into an artistic platform. This exclusive pairing brings style and sophistication to the rain-proof fashion accessory and shares enhanced design features with a weather-friendly version of Vans’ iconic Sk8-Hi silhouette.
Employing water-resistant technology within a vibrant offering of colors and prints, the Vault by Vans x London Undercover footwear collection fosters creative expression on a blank canvas. Jamie Milestone of London Undercover established his brand to celebrate “Britishness” at its core by bringing the umbrella to life, despite its general perception as a boring, last-minute item. The designs encourage people to enjoy and take pride in what could be a quintessential accessory and in this case, match them back to their footwear for a cohesive look.
The Full Cab Returns Alongside Pro Models Worn by Legends Cardiel, Barbee, and Rowley
Capping off Vans’ landmark year of heritage celebrating 50 years “Off The Wall”, the original action sports brand and #1 skate shoe manufacturer resurrects the most revered footwear icons of skate history this holiday season to send off the final installment of the Vans 50th Anniversary Pro Classics Collection, available worldwide now.
Legendary in skate shoe design and an icon in its own right, the unrivalled Full Cab returns to the Vans Pro Classics lineup. Originally released in 1989, Steve Caballero’s namesake style revolutionized skate footwear history by inspiring street skaters with the clever innovation to customize the shoe by cutting its collar in half, and thus spawning the “lighter, better, faster” Half Cab® in 1993. In its full form, the Full Cab honors a true original, representing the foremost modifications in performance skate footwear of which Vans is known for today.
Alongside the Full Cab Pro follows a trifecta of timeless silhouettes worn by three undeniable skateboarding legends including Ray Barbee, John Cardiel and Geoff Rowley. These influential skaters equally brought persona, style, and performance to an untouchable skate shoe trio highlighting the Old Skool Pro, the Chukka Pro, and the inimitable Rowley Pro, reintroduced this season in the original colorways of their time.
Breathing new life into the skate shoes we remember, know and love—and worn by true idols and innovators who made the industry—the Vans 50th Anniversary Pro Classics collection is enhanced with innovative performance features that provide upgraded cushioning and durability, featuring supportive ULTRACUSH HD sockliners for resilient cushioning and advanced comfort, and DURACAP reinforced underlays in high abrasion areas for premium durability and consistent fit. The iconic Full Cab joins new colorways of the Old Skool Pro, Chukka Pro and Rowley Pro for the final release of Vans’ 50th Anniversary Pro Classics Collection.

It was meant to be! Victor Delerue has finally landed his feet in some Vans boots. After stomping so many bangers and collecting massive video parts, the younger brother from the Delerue family has made a forename for himself. The frenchman is now one of the top backcountry riders in the world, being able to spine double corks and drop in on some of the steepest lines from the Alps to Alaska. This year he filmed for the full length Transworld movie « Insight » and the prestigious Brain Farm production « the Fourth Phase ». We are really excited to welcome such a smiley character in our team and we can't wait to see where his riding will go.

(Carlsbad, CA)– August 23, 2016- Reef, the global surf lifestyle leader, continues its humanitarian outreach known as We Heart, an altruistic program to mesh with the travel ethos of Just Passing Through.
The program is humanitarian in nature, designed to help those in need where Reef and its global ambassadors travel and surf, from our own coastal communities to those in the developing world. The community support is three-pronged, initiated to promote education, support community development, and preserve the natural environment.
This summer, Reef We Heart and Reef Ambassadors Mike Lay, Victoria Vergara, and Anna Ehrgott made a trip to Greece and helped Armando Aid create and fund education programs, build schools and buy materials for Oinofyta Refugee Camp. Through education and routine it may be possible to give a little hope to an entire generation of young Syrian, Afghani and other Middle Eastern children, a future to aim for and dreams to dream. The $10,000 donation from Reef will finish the school building project as well as fund a school for the Ritsona Refugee Camp. Watch the video here.
Reef will continue to share We Heart efforts on http://www.reef.com/we-heart.html and engage followers through social media and inspire a #ReefWeHeart conversation with communities all over the world that share in Reef’s vision.
In continuation of the brand’s 50th anniversary Vans capsule, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand launches the “Van Doren Approved” Collection, an assortment of footwear and apparel featuring heritage prints hand picked by Steve Van Doren, son of Vans founder Paul Van Doren. “I had the pleasure of creating this collection and recreating a vintage shot of me buried under the Van Doren Approved collection. Speaking to our heritage, this timeless image is inspired by a photo taken 20 years ago, which similarly brings back lots of great memories of the last 50 years of Vans. This collection honors some unique heritage prints, which date back to the ‘70s and ‘80s when this original photo was shot” recalls Van Doren. The Van Doren Approved assortment includes reissued styles with vintage graphics from the Vans archives.
The collection channels the spirit of Vans’ DIY-beginnings with pattern-clashing and color-contrasting footwear including old school tones and unconventional swatch blocking. Legendary Vans prints such as the iconic checkerboard, the skull pirate and the aloha leaf can be found on silhouettes such as the Sk8-Hi 38 Reissue, Era 95 Reissue, and Slip-On 98 Reissue – in addition to an updated flying Vans logo tee, classic patch trucker hat and the Old Skool backpack.
Originally known as The Van Doren Rubber Company, Vans opened up shop in Southern California on March 16, 1966. First Vans stores offered customers the opportunity to customize and order their shoes on-site. As a result, these vulcanized sneakers elevated creative expression to new levels, a characteristic that lives on in the brand’s DNA to this day.
Shop the 50th Anniversary Edition Van Doren Approved Collection in-stores and online this August at Vans.com.
Episode 7 of #justpassingthrough jumps from reef slabs in Portugal to throaty beach breaks in France, where Mitch Crews and Evan Geiselman join forces with fellow Reef Ambassadors Kai Otton, Mick Fanning and Roby D'Amico. The ensuing hunt for those elusive sandbars has its fair share of unthinkable exits and muscle-bending wipeouts as the boys steer their way through another European tube fest.
„Welcome!“ - jede Sprache der Welt kennt ein Wort dafür. Es kann eine einfache Begrüssung oder eine herzliche Aufforderung sein. Es ist ein starkes Wort, welches eine klare Haltung manifestiert. Aus dieser Haltung entstanden das Bedürfnis und der Wille, im Zusammenhang mit der aktuellen Flüchtlingskrise in Europa, zu helfen.
Backed by the biggest names in skate alongside the most beloved legends in BMX, the Vans Pro Classics collection is enhanced with innovative performance features that provide upgraded cushioning and durability via Vans’ Pro Skate performance technology, featuring supportive ULTRACUSH HD sockliners for resilient cushioning and advanced comfort, and DURACAP reinforced underlays in high abrasion areas for premium durability and consistent fit.
Vans Powers Up with a New Nintendo Collection! Vans and Nintendo Team Up for the Ultimate Adventure in Footwear and Apparel
Gamers, it’s time to power up as Vans and Nintendo, the ultimate two-player partnership, unveil an extensive collection of footwear, apparel and accessories celebrating the early days of video games. Vans presents exclusive graphic prints using 8-bit inspired artwork and characters from Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, Donkey Kong and The Legend of Zelda, as well as an assortment inspired by Nintendo’s first console, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Set to release June 3, this coveted collection will be available in adults and children’s sizing, making it ideal for Vans and Nintendo fans of all generations.
The Vans x Nintendo Classic footwear assortment kicks off with four variations of the Authentic silhouette. Travel to the Mushroom Kingdom for the first colorway, the Super Mario Bros. Tie-Dye, which showcases an all-over character print of Mario alongside several “power-ups” and the villainous Goomba over an 8-bit tie-dye pattern. A second color-up features the original damsel in distress, Princess Peach, awaiting rescue from her brave hero. Duck Hunt comes to life atop a digi-camo backdrop featuring the hunting dog and flying duck, and the final execution of the Authentic is an ode to Donkey Kong and incorporates imagery from its first level to present the title character in a unique floral arrangement. Vans’ iconic lace-free silhouette, the Classic Slip-On, appears in the sneaker lineup with graphics and quotes from The Legend of Zelda. A Sidestriped trio of the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool and Sk8-Hi Slim for women pay homage to the NES with prints and colors inspired by the console. Lace-up styles are trimmed with special details including Nintendo game logos on the tongue label and NES controller lace caplets. For the greatest feature, kick up your heels to reveal Vans iconic waffle sole printed with ‘Game Over!’
To present a throwback-styled, head-to-toe look, the Vans x Nintendo collaboration extends into apparel and accessory items for men and women. Co-branded tees, backpacks, bags, socks and hats are offered in prints that tie back to the Classic footwear.
Vans invites the newest generation to join in on the fun with sneaker styles sized down to youth and toddler fits. Tiny tykes can get their hands on patterns designed just for kids with characters from Mario Kart and Super Mario Bros. across the Sk8-Hi Zip, Classic Slip-on and Authentic.

This year has already been one to remember for Vans global team rider Daan Van Der Linden: from landing the front cover of both Thrasher Magazine and Free Skateboard Mag in the same month (out now) to filming for Volcom's Holy Stokes movie. Daan continues his flush with the release of his first signature colourway, available globally from selected skateshops from May 21st. This special make-up of the Style 112 Pro is made with suede uppers, while the UltraCush HD footbed keeps the foot close to the board, providing the highest level of impact cushioning, and the Vans original waffle outsole allows for a firmer grip. Featuring DURACAP upper reinforcement in high-wear areas for unrivalled durability, the Style 112 Pro also includes Vans vulcanised lite construction to deliver the best in board feel, flex and traction. Ahead of the launch, Daan offered a little insight into the shoe; “I am really happy with how it turned out, and even more so as I wanted to include suede throughout. One of the areas I looked at in great detail was the extra toe protection, which I wanted to be complimented by great board feel. In the final outcome, I think we’ve accomplished both”! On Daan’s rise to prominence, Jeroen Sars, founder & owner of 100% Skateshop said,”When I first saw Daan skate he made a big impression. The control and style for a young kid who had been on a skateboard for such a short time was remarkable. Through the years I've seen him grow to become an amazing skateboarder across all terrain, curbs, stairs, rails, transitions, he kills it all and makes it look good at the same time. That's why Daan already is or will soon be your favourite skater to watch. There’s never a dull moment with Daan”! Daan Van Der Linden’s Style 112 Pro colourway is available in Europe from the 21st May & across the US in selected skate shops from 1st June. See more at Vans.com.

True legends never die!
In an unforgettable comeback performance, original Bones Brigade member and certified legend Lance Mountain fueled the ultimate shakeup as he earned his first championship win at the 12th annual Vans Pool Party earlier today. Edging out podium veteran Steve Caballero, who placed in 2nd, and unseating nine-time Pool Party title-holder Chris Miller, who finished in third, Mountain powered through his runs combining his timeless style with an incredible mixed bag of tricks to win the title. Underlining an epic journey of Combi pool domination, the unstoppable Pedro Barros demonstrated another breathtaking feat of talent, blasting through huge airs in lightning fast runs to win his third Pool Party championship title to date. Rising star and pool ripper Cory Juneau sneaks in second with a game-changing final run, while Bucky Lasek utilized a clean, technical approach to secure third. Finally, closing out the Masters division, Darren Navarette took flight and put together a flawless run in classic Navs style, ousting last year's winner Bruno Passos.
