With the new year kicking off strong, it looks like Vans are gracing Bruno Hoffmann with his own signature shoe for 2015! They’ve taken the SK8 Mid Pro and given it a special touch to Bruno’s specifications! Get the full details and check out more photos after the jump!
There’s no denying that we have seen a lot of collaborations between brands over the years and they have all lead to some pretty cool final products. A few years back, Cult teamed up with Vans for a collaboration that produced two styles of shoes that yielded some amazing results — I still rock ’em even — and they have finally teamed back up for a second go! The shoes themselves have been available for a few weeks now, but we figured it would be a good time to take a closer look their latest collaboration with the classic Chukka Midtop and Era Pro shoes that they used for this time around! Let’s do this!
There’s no denying the success that Chase Hawk has found in BMX over all of his years of style that he has graced us with. This year in particular seems to be one that has been more than amazing than previous years with some unexpected changes to his sponsor line up, taking home a gold medal at the X-Games, having a day named after him in Austin, Texas, having a new version of his signature frame from Cult released and even more recently, his own signature colorway on the Marana shoe from Etnies. There have been a lot of good things happening for him and it’s safe to say it’s every bit well deserved.
A few weeks back, we got our hands on a pair of those signature shoes we just mentioned and figured it would be more than a good time to take a more in-depth look at just what makes the shoe special and give some insight into what we have thought about them so far! So, here we have… Our latest Insight! Let’s do this!
Here’s one we just spotted on The Merged of the new Lotek Winter Collection that will be dropping around November or December! They have a new Shawn McIntosh shoe, along with updated Mike Aitken Nightwolf shoes, Garrett Reeves shoes and the Fader. Really digging those Nighwolf’s with the camo.
Here’s one we spotted over on Focalpoint we’re stoked on. There’s a new BMX footwear brand coming through with the name Verve Footwear. They’re based out of Australia and will be hitting shops down there in August. I’d imagine if these take off, we’ll be seeing this brand popping up here in the U.S, Canada and in Europe before long. Check the flipbook above for a look at their first model of shoe that will be available in white or gum on the sole along with hats, shirts and more.
“The first line of products from Verve Footwear Brand will be available in August 2014. Footwear and apparel are rider designed and inspired. Just Ride Your Bike.”
The crew over at Vans have decided to go old school with their new LXVI collection! They have taken some of their classic styles of shoes and made them even more comfortable and lightweight. Check out the full collection of shoes right here. I’ve been wearing some LXVI’s for a few months now and they’re hands down some of the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn.
“The LXVI collection is the embodiment of innovative & comfort-driven design intended for the active lifestyle surrounding youth culture. Check out the new Fall styles such as the Classic Lites and the Trig, available now at your local authorized Vans dealer. Music: “Sun of a Beach” by Beach Bros”
