With 2016 marking the 40th and 50th anniversaries of Madrid Skateboards and Vans respectively, the brands come together for this collabo.
As the first griptape manufacturing company, Madrid Skateboards has operated in Huntington Beach since 1976, marking 40 years of crafting skateboard accessories. For this collaboration, they picked the Sk8-Hi Pro as part of Vans’ 50th Anniversary Pro Classics collection, and decorated it Madrid Flypaper on the side panels.
The sneaker also features Vans’ ULTRACUSH HD sock liners and DURACAP toe bumpers.
The limited edition Madrid x Vans Sk8-Hi Pro launches at select stockists worldwide on Aug. 20.
