Vans x Independent Truck Co. join forces for the latest installment of their collaboration series. The new Vans x Independent collection features a footwear and apparel collection that combines Vans’ checkerboard with Independent’s cross logo.
Unified by details that celebrate Independent’s reputation in skateboarding, the Vans x Independent collection includes footwear such as the Sk8-Hi Pro and Slip-On Pro, along with a version of Tony Trujillo’s signature shoe, the TNT Advanced Prototype. Each footwear style mimics the look of a classic Independent truck, with metallic silver foxing stripes and rubber outsoles that exactly match the signature orange hue that is unique to Indy bushings.
The footwear offering blends functionality with style, each Vans x Independent shoe employs Vans’ technology, offering durability and support through the UltraCush™ HD and UltraCush™ Lite 3D footbeds for impact protection, Duracap-reinforced uppers for durability, and Vans’ original waffle outsoles for the 'best boardfeel in the business.'
The Vans and Independent apparel collection is the largest assortment yet. With nearly 20 apparel pieces in tow, the capsule blends skate staples with retro styles and vintage graphics. Featuring an updated take on the Vans Versa hoodie and Authentic Chino pant, in addition to signature woven flannels, T-shirts, coveralls, socks, and trucker hats, the Vans Independent apparel capsule represents the 'classic skate uniform', complimented by custom Vans and Independent logo graphics to tie it all together.
The Vans x Independent Truck Co. collaboration will be available online and in select retail stores across Europe from August 22nd.
