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.
