Vans and renowned skate magazine, Free Skate Mag have teamed up on their first footwear collection, dropping next week.
Anybody with an interest in modern skateboarding will already be well aware of Free magazine, the bi-monthly publication that's been opening minds, kickstarting conversations and questioning conformity across Europe and the world since 2015.
Vans and Free decided to rework two of Free’s favourite past and present silhouettes – the Skate Sid and Skate Half Cab ’92. These two classic Vans Skateboarding styles have been given the Free treatment – with the magazine’s signature red ‘dot’ on the insole and outsole of both shoes and a subtle nod on the Half Cab eyelet. The shoes are given a premium execution with full leather uppers – The Sid in nubuck and the Half Cab in suede and feature the full Vans Skateboarding tech feature set – Duracap for durability, Sickstick Rubber for grip and Pop Cush for impact protection and comfort.
