When two great brands like Anti Hero skateboards and Vans collaborate, you're going to get plenty of rad stuff. The two brands have done collaborations in the past, but this round their mutual riders Andrew Allen, Chris Pfanner, and Jeff Groso got pro classics colorways. Which is really what we all want to wear anyways.
The iconic Van's sillouettes of the Slip-on, Era 46, and the sk8-mid were chosen for this colab. The most obscure is probably the sk8-mid, not always present in the classics line, Jeff Grosso's Vans x anti hero Sk8-Mid Pro in green and white get the pro classics treatment. the sk8 mid features a Achilles cut out not present in the sk8-hi while still offering similar protection, the padding is thinned out and provides better ankle mobility.
Chris Pfanner's Vans x Antihero Era 46 pro in navy gives the Era 46 the pro classics upgrade, featuring better suede, a duracap rubber toe protection under the suede, and the Ultra Cush pro insole.The Vans Andrew Allen Slip-on pro in black / gum did one of two things, give us a much needed Slip-on pro (skateable slips have been hard to come by) and honor one of the most low key ripping dudes in skateboarding.
No Vans x Anti Hero collaboration would be complete without some apparel to tie it all together, The Vans x Anti Hero Coach Jacket in Pine green offers wind and water resistance in a classic Anti Hero colorway. You gotta have a t-shirt to wear under it and none better than the Vans x Antihero tee in black. Featuring a front and back brown eagle print. Top it all off with some Vans Anti Hero socks in white / yellow / brown that classic retro pacific northwest styling never felt so right.
