Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, listened to the BMX community and enlisted insight from Vans team rider Dakota Roche to help build the Slip-On Pro BMX, the first-ever Vans Slip-On to offer Wafflecup BMX technology. Considered one of the hardest working BMX riders out there today, Dakota’s unrelenting drive for street riding has bolstered his professional career and garnered many accolades over the past ten years. In need of a shoe that stands up to his riding, Dak worked with Vans on the Slip-On BMX Pro, featuring a striking two-tone black and white colorway with a black outsole.
“The Slip-On Pro has been my go-to shoe for riding, skating and chilling for some time now. In my mind,
Argentina certainly isn’t known for smooth streets or an abundance of spots, but you wouldn’t know it when watching Gaspar Guendulain ride. Gaspar left a lasting impression while visiting Stateside last year, churning out numerous video parts full of his buttery smooth technical prowess.
The first ever Vans 'The Circle' video contest is finished and now we've got a really sick mashup from all the shops' footage, laced together into this unique video by Rich Forne. The riding throughout the whole contest was next level and this is the perfect showcase of all the different styles.
Two of the world’s most iconic BMX brands have teamed up yet again to release the Vans x CULT collection, a head-to-toe offering of apparel and footwear that reflects storied histories, Southern California roots, and a shared roster of BMX riders, including freestyle powerhouse and 2021 Olympic hopeful Angie Marino. The collection leads with the Versa Hoodie in orange, featuring water-repellant STORM COTTON technology and printed CULT Checkerboard art down both sleeves. For Angie, the Versa is more than just another comfy staple in her collection of Vans x CULT collaborations: “I love that it has a Velcro pocket for your phone so when you’re riding or being active it won’t bounce out,” she said, adding that she always looks forward to what the two brands will create together.
Vans and Cult have joined forces once again on the Old Skool Pro BMX, inspired by both brands’ storied histories in BMX. Part of a new head-to-toe Vans x CULT collection, the Old Skool Pro BMX brings together CULT’s iconic graphic details and styling with one of Vans’ most classic silhouettes. Designed to perform at the level of shared team riders like Dakota Roche, Sean Richany, and Angie Marino, the shoe features Vans’ revolutionary WAFFLECUP BMX, a first-of-its-kind technology in BMX that delivers the best combination of support and durability without sacrificing pedal feel. Specifically designed and tested by and for BMXers, WAFFLECUP BMX features a herringbone underlayer that adds a second life beneath Vans’ classic gum rubber compound with a more rigid flex pattern, all reinforced like a tank.
Back in June of 2019 Dennis Enarson set out to make the part of a lifetime; something he and the BMX community would be proud of. The goal was to capture BMX riding that lives on throughout time. He spent 8 months hammering away at his goal.
Hope you are staying healthy and safe during this time of uncertainty.
As we’ve all come to witness, we are currently facing an unprecedented global crisis that has impacted the way we live, work and interact as a global community. It has caused global disruptions and changes to the way businesses operate beyond what could have been imagined. In light of the COVID-19 situation, our brand has been taking a series of precautionary steps to ensure that the health and wellbeing of our Vans Family and the global community remains our top priority. This has involved postponing or canceling upcoming owned events globally through to closing our corporate offices and Vans retail locations across North America, Europe and select locations in Asia Pacific.
As a global brand focused on connecting with our consumers around the world through experiences and spaces that bring their creativity to life, Vans will always prioritize the health and wellbeing of our consumers and staff.
With that said, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Vans BMX Pro Cup Series season.
This was not an easy decision, but one we feel is necessary in the current state of uncertainty.
Vans is proud to present Homestead, a fresh new edit from Dennis Enarson, Jason Watts and Corey Walsh, filmed by Christian Rigal. The impetus for the film came together after the three built a world-class ramp setup in Dennis’ backyard late last year.
