As you probably have heard by now, the crew over at Vans are celebrating 50 years of producing some of the best BMX and skate shoes. One of the ways that they have been celebrating, Vans have released some special edition 50th Anniversary shoes that highlight some of their heritage. The other day we received a surprise package from Vans and inside was a pair of their new 50th anniversary SK8-Hi Reissue Pro ’86 shoes that are available in this navy, baby blue and white combo. We were really digging the look and figured it would be rad to give you guys a closer look just incase you’re on the hunt for some new shoes!
The 50th anniversary SK8-Hi Reissue Pro ’86 was brought back for Dennis McCoy who has been one of the longest standing BMX team riders for Vans. The color combo was one of the most popular color combos back in the 80’s, so it made complete sense to celebrate Dennis since he’s been a key part of the Vans family over the years.
Taking a look at the shoe, it features a suede, canvas and leather upper with the iconic wave logo, a small Vans tag on the heal, a sewn patch on the tongue and the DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in some of the high wear spots. Inside you can find the UltraCush HD sockliners with a high level of cushioning to absorb impacts like a champ. Of course, you can also find Vans’ iconic Waffle sole to wrap things up. You know your feet won’t be sliding around on your pedals with those.
Inside you can find Vans’ UltraCush insole which is designed for comfort and absorbing impacts to prevent bruising on your feet.
The Vans 50th anniversary SK8-Hi Reissue Pro ’86 shoes are available now through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Vans worldwide now. They’re available for $70.00 – $75.00 and come in sizes of 6.5 on up through 13 in mens sizes. You can also pick the up on Amazon right now, or through the Vans Website
Overall, the shoes turned out absolutely dialed and it’s safe to say they definitely picked a rad classic to bring back to celebrate 50 years of Vans. We want to hear from you! Let us know what you think in the comments below!
