All About Skidoo

on: 22 August 2019
Napapijri’s Fall/Winter ’19 collection celebrates the brand’s original jacket, The Skidoo, by revisiting it through the lenses of design, innovation, and sustainability. These elements come together in Skidoo Monte Bianco, a ski-jacket that combines Skidoo’s classic shape with Napapijri’s innovative spirit thanks to its high-tech features and details. Finally, Skidoo Creator channels The Tribe’s  independent, creative spirit by exaggerating the Skidoo’s traditional silhouette and turning it into a down-free streetwear must-have.

Vans has joined forces with the iconic Baker Skateboards to create an apparel and footwear collection that celebrates both brands’ storied history and identities in skateboarding. 

Featuring a curated selection of exclusive colorways in the Old Skool Pro, Slip-On Pro, SK8-Hi Pro and the Style 112 Pro, as well as collaborative apparel pieces like the Authentic Chino Pro and a Vans x Baker pullover, each piece of this collection is designed for durability. 

Built from the ground up with input from the Vans and Baker skate teams, each of the four Pro footwear styles include supportive UltraCush HD footbeds, which provide the highest level of impact cushioning that won’t pack out over time, and Duracap-reinforced underlays in high-abrasion areas for longevity and consistent fit. 

The Authentic Chino Pro pants, offered in a standout white colorway, are constructed of extra-durable 8.2 oz poly/cotton blend with a straight fit, double-chain-stitched flat felled seams, reinforced critical stress areas, hidden stash pocket, and Silvadur anti-microbial technology to protect fabric and maintain freshness between washing. The offering is anchored by a black Vans x Baker hooded pullover. 

Founded at the intersection of East Broadway and Warner Avenue, this partnership pays homage to Vans propensity for “Off The Wall” since 1966 and Baker’s inclination toward “Giving Skateboarding a Bad Name” since 2000. Both influential to shaping skateboarding and its irreverent culture through music, fashion and art, Vans and Baker Skateboards unsurprisingly are home to some of the world’s most well-known pros including Dustin Dollin, Rowan Zorilla. Tyson Peterson and the newest Baker pro, Kader Sylla.

The Vans x Baker Collection is now available online and in stores. Learn more at

The all-new silhouette boasts the iconic Sidestripe that Vans has become recognized for, in addition to many new design updates. A breathable, linerless upper has been specially engineered to reduce bulk and improve support, while a flexible heel counter increases stability. The Mod RapidWeld also ushers in the Ultimate Waffle technology - a full-rubber cupsole crafted with variable thickness to deliver flex, traction and durability.

Beyond providing elevated comfort and improved fit, the UltraCush midsoles are also constructed using a reduced amount of glue – an attribute highlighted through the shoes transparent tinted rubber. The end result is an extremely lightweight and flexible outsole.

Throughout history, with each new era that defines skating, surfing, snowboarding and the surrounding culture, Vans has taken stock of where it’s been while focusing on what’s yet to come. The result has pushed both the brand and the entire footwear market forward. The Mod Rapidweld is the latest milestone to do just that, placing a premium on comfort and style, and ready to go anywhere you are.

The Mod RapidWeld is now in stores and in the hero colorway of quiet shade and true white, as well as all-black and racing red with true white.
