Cypress, CALIF. (June 15, 2016) – On the heels of a memorable
celebration honoring Vans’ 50th Anniversary this past March, the
original action sports footwear and apparel brand gathers
momentum with the second installment of the commemorative
Vans Pro Classics Anniversary Collection, available worldwide
Backed by the biggest names in skate alongside the most beloved
legends in BMX, the Vans Pro Classics collection is enhanced with
innovative performance features that provide upgraded cushioning
and durability via Vans’ Pro Skate performance technology,
featuring supportive ULTRACUSH HD sockliners for resilient
cushioning and advanced comfort, and DURACAP reinforced
underlays in high abrasion areas for premium durability and
consistent fit.
Heralding the “Off The Wall” lifestyle of boards and bikes since the
early 1970s, Vans’ Pro Classics Anniversary series continues to
honor the brand’s enduring athlete heritage. With tribute releases
inspired by freestyle BMX pioneer Eddie Fiola and cherished BMX
innovator Dennis McCoy, the fall assortment upholds Vans’
unwavering support of the BMX sport, and aptly coincides with the
release of Vans’ first full-length BMX film, Illustrated—available
now on iTunes. Last but certainly not least, skate icons and
venerated historians of skateboarding, Christian Hosoi and Jeff
Grosso, also lend their influence, reviving timeless colors and
checkerboard flair from their heyday into the lineup.
New colorways and patterns of the Sk8-Hi Pro and the Era Pro join
the timeline this fall. Visit for authorized
Vans dealers and to learn more about the Pro Classics
commemorative styles.
