In its continued celebration of its 50th anniversary, Vans is set to release its Pro Classics Anniversary Collection.
Anecdoted by its original year of release, each style in the drop pays homage to influential cultural milestones from Vans’ groundbreaking era of 1966-2000. During these days, the brand saw connections with icons such as original Dogtown Z-boy Stacy Peralta, celebrated surfer Duke Kahanamoku, and Vans’ skateboarding legend Christian Hosoi. Whether it was taking the Hawaiian shirt off Duke’s back to design a custom pair of floral Authentics, or padding the collar in the original Era to create the first “Off The Wall” shoe in skateboarding, the brand has championed reinvention, while paving the way in design progression.
Included are model favorites such as the Era Pro, Checkerboard Slip-On Pro, and Authentic Pro, all of which release as part of the Vans Pro Classics Anniversary Collection on March 16, with forthcoming installments later this year. For more info, visit Vans.com.
