When you think of skateboarding a few brands immediately come to mind. For most of you that company is Vans. Vans truly has played a huge part in what skateboarding is today. They’ve been dedicated to skateboarding since day one and after almost 40 years they released their first ever full length skate video, Vans Propeller.
Like peanut butter and jelly, America and baseball, beer and BBQ and more beer, Vans and Anti-Hero go together hand in hand. A match made in the shadows of a 10ft concrete bowl. With the release of the highly anticipated Vans video on the horizon and the fact that nearly all of the 1-8 squad are reppin’ wafflegrip, it was only a matter of time before they hit us with the Vans x Anti Hero collab. Both Vans and Anti-Hero are deeply rooted and committed to skateboarding, the way it should be. Just ask the guy silently killing the big wall at your local park, chances are he’s skating Vans and Anti-Hero.
Get a grip on the new Tony Trujillo’s! These are the living legend’s sixth generation pro model for Vans and his best shoe yet.

Vans Syndicate and the DEFCON squad join forces once again for another brilliant adaptation of military aesthetic to a classic Vans silhouette. This year they’re revisiting the Sk8-Hi and outfitting it with Maritime Assault Suit (MAS) grey ballistic textile paneling, developed by London Bridge Trading and used by Navy SEALs. The Vans x DEFCON Sk8-Hi Notchback MAS Grey fuses tactical performance with skateboarding style to produce all-terrain skate assault weapons for your feet. Now available at Skate Warehouse!
I was saddened to hear about the passing of Matt Reason earlier this week. For those of you who don’t know, Matt Reason was an undeniably talented skater in the mid 90’s who—along with Ricky Oyola—changed the perception of East Coast skateboarding and coverage. For the SW replay, I chose Matt’s Pro Files part from 411VM issue 12. Take note of the spots. It’s raw street skating at it’s finest. I hope anybody who watches this becomes inspired to pick up their board and explore their surroundings! RIP Matt Reason.
