Saturday, April 23rd, 2016


Vans, killing the shoe game since 1966 and never failing to keep the feet of many extremely satisfied. Over the years we have seen some amazing things come from these guys including the 50th anniversary shoes that were released earlier this year then the ‘Propeller’ DVD that came out last year. That’s just a small amount of the happening’s too since I’ve not even mentioned the opening of the ‘House Of Vans’ in London. All are obviously exciting movements for the Off The Wall fans out there. In connection with the Propeller DVD Vans recently added all the RAW files from their to the worldwide web and each individual one is a more than a decent watch. Here’s a couple below for you to get started…

Also a lot better to skate in, if you want to have a look at our collection then here’s the link to do so as I’m sure a fair few will be wanting some after watch the Vans Propeller RAW files..
