Vans’ “Shikumen” Video

 

Vans Asia recently rented out a “Shikumen”, an old Shanghai lane house for a month. They called upon Vans teams from across the glob to come and occupy the house in week long shifts to explore the city. Squads from the USA, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, France and Australia voyaged around with the Vans China team as they shredded the streets day by day. Featuring a host of rippers including Jackson Pilz, Chima Ferguson, Dustin Henry, CK, Juwon Eun, Jesse Noonan, Etienne Gagne, Chris Bradley, Mike Lee, Justin Henry, Mario Palandeng, Piet Guilfoyle, Zhenya Buzukin, Jeremy Hu, Azreen Azman, Shogo Zama, Fifa Tintarn, Xiao Jun, Jerm Sothichai, Pedro Delfino and Victor Pellegrin. Six minutes of shred from the city of marble, filmed and edited by Tommy Zhao and Liu Maomao.

Natural Born Cooler – A Vans Europe Skate Video

Sunday, July 8th, 2018

Natural Born Cooler – Vans

 

 

It’s here. The new video from Vans Europe Natural Born Cooler is finally gracing the internet. Back in 2016 Chris Pfanner got approached by Vans Europe to organize a skate trip with some of the European team riders. The boys hit Alicante, Vienna, Luxembourg, Cyprus and Sicily for this. And it’s a gooden’. Some mind blowing skateboarding going down in this video, so certainly worth 18 minutes of your sweet time.

 

 

Big shout out to Paul Labadie for bringing us the video along with Sebastien Raban on additional filming. Albert Nyberg and Nassim Guammaz sort of steal the show for me. This was Alberts first trip out with the Vans Europe team and he killed it!

 

 

Much love to Free Skate Mag for the collaboration between them and Natural Born Cooler. With the latest issue including a zine from the trip. Not much more left to say, go watch for yourself down below.

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

Vans x Odd Future – Saturday (24/09/16)

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

 

VANS X ODD FUTURE RELEASE THIS SATURDAY. MORE INFO BELOW ON THIS YEARS MOST EXCLUSIVE COLLABORATION!!!!

 

OF for blog

 

It’s that time of the year again, that special moment when Vans join forces with none other than Odd Future (OFWGKTA), bringing you the uttermost exclusive/limited collaboration there is and probably has ever been. Having said that I was mightily impressed when Coke Cola joined forces with vanilla so maybe not the best. Anyway despite my thirty brain, I would suggest you guys make a reminder for this Saturday (24/09/16), that is when the world will collapse and donuts will appear on the feet of masses worldwide. The previous drops that Vans and Odd Future have done over the years have been good although they do not compare to this one. Get the wallets/purses at the ready…. you seriously don’t want to miss out on this one.

This years collaboration will include two recognizable styles that are widely known by all Vans lovers. They’ll be the classic Authentic and the ever so popular SK8 HI’s. Both irresistible. Take a closer look at each pair below….

With prices, the Authentic will cost you £51.95 and then the SK8 HI will be £64.95. So finally as you already know, this Saturday sees the release of both pairs and to make things fair we have decided to sell them just in store from 10:00 am. If any pairs are left over then they will go online later that day. Although I wouldn’t advice waiting until they do because due to the high demand I cannot say they’ll be any left over to put online. Set your alarms and be at the ready for this highly limited collaboration release from Vans and Odd Future.

See you all Saturday… Peace.

 


The Vans x Pass~Port Collaboration

Friday, August 12th, 2016

 

 

Vans and Pass~Port Skateboards have joined forces to bring you one hell of a collaboration. I mean what would life be like if we didn’t have brands joining forces bringing you the best of both worlds? Well I’ll tell you…. It would be boring, almost similar to watching the unstoppable rain falling from our grey Manchester sky, shitters! Anyway to lighten the mood Vans x Pass~Port have brought two banging pairs of shoes that’ll be available to purchase on Saturday (13/08/16) and as always with certain collabs like this they are very limited and exclusive and it’s a first come first served policy. So get the paper at the ready as you are going to love these. Here’s a closer look at them below…

Now that’s a shoe, you’d be crazy not to appreciate these bad boys. The shoe is a Vans Old Skool and this specific shoe has seen on the feet of skaters for a massive number of years and there are possibly one of the most successful skate shoes going. On the other hand Pass~Port is one of skateboarding’s underground companies who are definitely not shy when it comes to releasing powerful edits, you might have seen some of their previous edits before and if you haven’y you can get started right now as in connection with the shoe release we have Vans and Pass~Port – Callum Paul and Nik Stipanovic video. Filmed on the Streets of Australia’s Melbourne and Sydney you have 7 minutes of stylish, creative skating.

 

Grab your pair before stock sells out….  http://www.blacksheepstore.co.uk/vans-skate-shoes.html
