Just in case you missed the 50th-anniversary classics release back in March, don't fret because Vans is set to release a new set of 50th-anniversary shoes.
Christian Hosoi combined raw power, style, and a larger-than-life persona in this double checkerboard Sk8-Hi Pro ’83 that recreates an iconic early colorway of the Sk8-Hi that came to be known as the quintessential skate shoe of the ’80s.
Also, Eddie Fiola, a famous BMX rider's Era Pro ’83 goes retro in red, white and blue —just like Eddie wore in his famous Vans ad.
Dennis McCoy's Sk8-Hi Pro ’86 has been retroed as well, featuring its most iconic colorway from the ’80s
From the Santa Cruz team in the ’80s to Black Label in the ’90s and AntiHero today, Jeff Grosso bleeds skateboarding. Jeff’s custom black & white two-tone Sk8-Hi is reproduced with modernized Pro construction as the Sk8-Hi Pro ’87.
All of these models will feature extensive update for tech and comfort including the new one-piece DuraCap toe bumpers and UltraCush HD insoles.
The Vans 50th Anniversary Pro Classics - Wave 2 collection is now available from the BLENDS brother core-skate shop BTNC. Check your local Vans stockists for availability. The pairs will set you back $70 for the Era Pro '83 and $75 for each Sk8 Hi.
