Vault by Vans Original Classics: OG Era LX & OG Style 36 LX

Vault by Vans brings forth the next installment of Original Classics as a tribute to two iconic low-tops, the Era and Style 36. The OG Era LX follows the same design specs as its first run in 1976 for three styles featuring the archived “Palm Leaf” print. Vibrant color combinations in Navy/Green, Peach/Antique White and Pool Blue/Black reflect the edgy skate vibe of the ‘80s.

The OG Style 36 LX is reintroduced for a duo of “Two Tone” offerings in Classic Blue/Dandelion and Orange Rust/Coconut Shell. First seen in 1978 with the Vans sidestripe, the Style 36 is the original rendering of the Old Skool. The “Palm Leaf” editions of the OG Era LX and “Two Tone” makes of the OG Style 36 LX arrive this June at key Vault by Vans stockists.

[RE-UP] All Defgrip Originals

defgrip, originals, ruben alcantara, greyboy, cory nastazio, oakley, interviews, bmx, video

Are you new to Defgrip? Just started checking the site over the last year or 2? Well, time to catch up on some sweet original content our crew have produced. If you’ve been with us since the beginning, there’s no harm in revisiting these again. Either way, we appreciate ya.

Harrison Boyce and Andrew McMullen have sat down with some interesting BMX & NON-BMX characters for video interviews starting back in 2008. These interviews were pretty different for BMX at the time and I think they did a good job at connecting you with these people (I didn’t produce them so I can say that, ha). Subjects include Ruben Alcantara, Cory Nastazio (probably the most talked about Original), Greyboy, The History of Oakley and much much much more…

In case some of you have missed any of the sweet video content we have brought you this year, here they all are in one place.

The videos are embedded from (mostly) oldest to newest, and you will find interviews as well as riding edits. As I was compiling this, I kept being reminded of all the great stuff from this year that I had forgotten about.

Enjoy!

Defgrip Original – Ruben Alcantara

I had the great opportunity to visit Malaga, Spain and stay with Ruben in February. While I was there, I had a few requests to do an Original with him. While the trip was work related I wasn’t sure if I was going to have the time or not to make the interview happen, but right at the last minute before Ruben took me to the airport we sat down for a half hour and made it happen! I’m real happy we squeezed it in!

Ruben is a legend in his own regard, having made a heavy impact of the current style of riding as well as the type of bikes we ride and being responsible for some of the most influential video parts of our generation. Ruben is not only an amazing rider, but an amazing person and I have been a fan since I can remember!
