Colossal Media are responsible for some amazing large scale hand painted murals, and have been putting up great work for some time. If you frequent this site, you may remember THIS piece. When I caught a glimpse of this Vans mural featuring some classic Dennis McCoy action on their Instagram, I was obviously psyched.

The above image is the mural in progress. Click below to check out the finished mural.

Vans OTW Collection Feathers Pack for Spring 2013

The feather carries a symbolic meaning across many different cultures. For some, it stands as a symbol of good fortune – in Native American culture, the feather is a symbol of honor and strength. This spring, the Vans OTW Collection channels these sentiments into a capsule of apparel and footwear for the Feathers pack. Custom feather embroidery adorns three silhouettes; the Lasdun, Ludlow and Howell exhibit the pattern on each set of canvas quarter panels. Tonal pig suede detailing, waxed laces, metal eyelet and laser-etched tongue branding completes the selection of sneakers. Additional usage of the custom embroidered motif can be seen throughout the Myers short and Eldridge 5-Panel. The Flock tee rounds off the apparel assortment with screen printed feather graphics pressed against the lightweight cotton top.

The Feathers pack ships this March to select retailers as the final spring offering from the Vans OTW Collection.

Van Doren Series Classics


Van Doren Series Classics for Spring 2013

The spring season rolls out the next installment of the Van Doren Series from Vans Classics. Vans revives long-gone prints on two styles of the Era and three makes of the Authentic. The Era presents a funky two-tone treatment which is inspired by custom sneakers from Vans’ early days when customers could create their own color-ups in-store. Designers recreated two pairs of vintage custom Eras with the Checker/Green Flash and Hawaiian/Red colorways. The Authentic reintroduces a trio of prints last seen in the early ‘90s for its Leopard/Black, Parrot/Light Blue and Retro Flag offerings. Each piece of footwear is finished off with an enzyme wash treatment and the original Van Doren heeltab branding. The Van Doren Series Authentics and Eras are available now at select Vans retailers.

I’ve just been slapped by a French kid!

Soooooooo, yeah. What just happened? Who is this kid?!?!?!?!?!

The name Anthony Perrin does not ring a bell to me, but then again I don’t live in France nor do I live on the internet watching every kids video. This edit is to celebrate Anthony’s addition the French Vans pro team (congrats). I don’t really care about that, but I do care about that first clip and this edit in general. Kid’s good.

Maybe this WAS all a dream??
