Vans x Anti Hero Skateboards Collaboration Release

Like we need any excuse to talk about Vans x Anti Hero! To say we’re stoked on this collaboration release is an understatement. Get the low down on this full release then scan your cursor downwards and hit play. Like we say, any excuse for some Anti Hero appreciation with a shed load of classic footage.

 

This collaboration pack includes the Vans TNT Advanced Prototype, Vans Slip On Pro, Old Skool Pro and the ever illusive Vans Sk8 Mid Pro’s. The full collaboration capsule is due in any-day now. Keep an eye on our Black Sheep Store Instagram for up to minute updates.

 

 

With signature models from the legendary collaboration riders Tony Trujillo, Chris Pfhanner, John Cardiel and Jeff Grosso. Plus insole artwork by the absolute ruler Todd Francis

 

Take note of the Vans Pro range and the differences with make up and insoles. The TNT Advanced Prototype and Grosso Sk8-Mid Pro’s both utilising Vans UltraCush Lite 3D footbed insoles (*editors note- these are ridicuously comfy with real arch support in a vulcanised shoe.) The John Cardiel Old Skool Pro and Chris Pfhanner Slip On Pro are both equipped with Duracap (dual layer reinforcement under toe piece suede) reinforced rubber underlays for durability plus the ever popular UltraCush HD sockliners for cushioning and impact protection.

 

All the Vans x Anti Hero Footwear range comes complete with the Todd Francis artwork insoles along with woven embroidered Anti Hero tab label. Seriously can’t choose between the styles of this collaboration pack but the welcome return of the Vans Sk8 Mid from Jeff Grosso is sure to be a straight up classic go to skate shoe.

Also you’ll be able to purchase the banging apparel pack to coincide with this Vans x Anti Hero release.

 

The Vans x Antihero apparel collection comes correct as you’d expect. Clean simple graphics on short and long sleeve tees, a fleece pullover hooded sweatshirt and a trucker hat. Make sure you check the detailing on the staple work-wear inspired yarn dye shadow plaid flannel shirt. Regular straight fit with Todd Francis artwork pigeon embroidery to lower hem plus custom label package details.

Now remind yourselves why Anti Hero Skateboards is one of the most well respected brands out there. Good reason why skate footwear rulers Vans continue to seek out these collaborations with only the best. “All Hail” Vans x Anti Hero.

 

 

The classic Antihero “Fucktards” video. Originally release back in 1997.

 

 

 

 

The one when Cardiel goes nuts! Or is that even nuttier than before. John Cardiel worship is highly encouraged!

 

 

 

 

This was the one you just couldn’t find on video. Maybe your mate had a copy of a copy held together with celloptape and the prongs snapped out so you couldn’t record over it. Timeless skateboarding Antihero “Two Songs” from the year 2002.

 

 

 

 

Tony Trujillo aka TNT = Vans x Anti Hero lifer!

Okay so it’s not classic Grosso footage from the late 80’s but his ‘Love letters to Skateboarding’ episodes are just to entertaining to not mention.

Legendary skater Tony Trujillo’s new pro shoe is coming into the shop very soon! The universal release date for the TNT Advance Prototype is 14th July. We are very excited to be unleashing these bad boys. Especially as we have got our hands on colorways that only a limited number of skate shops in the UK will be stocking.

 

This old school hero needs no introduction really. But just to get you up to speed, the TNT Advance Prototype is the newest pro shoe from Tony Trujillo. Tony first popped up in 411 VHS tapes back in the 1990s and has been an absolute powerhouse in the world of skateboarding ever since. He’s been in it for the long haul with both AntiHero and Vans. Bringing out countless parts over the years, and of course earning himself 2002’s Skater of the Year. We have attached a few famous edits from the man himself down below.

Now, a bit about the TNT Advanced Prototype Skate Shoe:

 

We have got the shoes in 4 colorways which you can see in the photos above. The TNT’s features a breathable mesh panel for all you sweaty stinking skaters out there. As well as a duracap toe wrap, rubber ollie patch and toe guard for a stronger, longer lasting structure. And of course the classic UltraCush LITE 3D footbed and WaffleCup sole.

 

For anyone who remembers the TNT SG skate shoe, the TNT Advanced Prototype is like a proper upgraded version of the TNT SG. We expect these to sell rapidly once we hit the release day so if you want them, stay tuned.

 

The TNT Advanced Prototype will release on 14th July 2018, you’ll be able to shop for them here: https://www.blacksheepstore.co.uk/vans.html

 

Watch the man himself:

Rough Cut: Tony Trujillo’s “Spitfire x Antihero” Part

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

 

I must admit I sometimes prefer these rough cut edits more than the final product. Take a look behind the scenes at the process including alternative angles to see what it took Tony T to film his Spitfire X AntiHero part. He’s been Skater Of The Year, a King of the Road champion and his latest part showed us that he’s much more explosive than ever. Lets give some well deserved big ups to one of the all time greats, TNT!
