|The Vans Skateboarder magazine collab... |
A couple of months ago, SkateBoarder Magazine, the greatest skateboard magazine of the 70’s and Vans shoes decided to work on a joint project. It was a natural fit: the original skate mag and the original skate shoe. For this limited-edition Summer 2012 sneaker collection, Skateboarder Magazine heads back to its roots, joining forces with Vans to recreate the look and feel of three of Vans’s most iconic styles: the Era, the Old Skool, and the Mid Skool. Each shoe comes in a commemorative box and in a colorway befitting of the early days of skateboarding, with subtle Skateboarder Magazine branding on the heel and in the sockliner.
We are surprised this collaboration hasn’t happened before. With SkateBoarder Magazine being the original skate magazine and Vans being the iconic skate shoe, it just seems like a no brainer for both of them to team up. The collaboration not only features shoes, but clothes, too! The shoes and the clothing line are available now at selected Vans stores only.
