Vans & Skateboarding Legend Andrew Reynolds Team Up For Epic Skate Classics Collection

If you’re into the skateboarding scene, there’s no doubt in my mind that you know who Andrew Reynolds is. The now household name has teamed up with Vans to bring to you this dope Andrew Reynolds x Vans Skate Classics Collection.

The Andrew Reynolds x Vans Skate Classics Collection includes three skate-ready models: the Reynolds Skate Old Skool, Skate Half Cab 92, and the Skate Sk8-Hi. All three pairs are crafted with premium materials that make the sneaker both more comfortable and durable. Designed with skaters in mind, each pair is designed with a new last that in turn results in a better fit. Other design details include the tongue straps and molded heel counters that keep your fit locked in for superior control, while the DURACAP underlays add flexibility in areas that are most needed. Two-part foxing features a heavier knurl texture on toe bumpers, as well as Sick Stick, a new proprietary gum rubber compound, increases the durability and longevity of the shoe. In addition, Vans best-in-class PopCush energy-return footbeds snap back and won’t pack out, keeping legs feeling fresh to skate longer. 

The Skate Classics Andrew Reynolds collection features a classic brown and navy color scheme inspired by workwear textiles like denim, leather, heavy canvas, and plaid. Each shoe features the standard Vans skateboarding label flipped inside out revealing the key message, “World’s No. 1 Skateboarding Shoe” placed alongside Reynolds’ namesake. The Skate Half Cab 92 leads the pack, in golden brown suede and heavy canvas with a classic black tongue. The Checkerboard flag and heel scab add an unexpected pop of red linking back to the tongue labels. The Skate Old Skool comes in navy suede with a golden brown leather Sidestripe and denim-inspired stitching, and the Skate Sk8-Hi features navy suede overlays on golden brown quarter panels with contrast white stitching. All three silhouettes feature classic black foxing and a ‘90s grunge-inspired plaid footbed.

Vans’ Skate Classics Andrew Reynolds Collection will be available September 1 at Vans retail locations and at Vans.com/Skateboarding.
