Vans and Baker have teamed up on a collection of exclusive footwear colorways for team riders Rowan Zorilla, Kader Sylla, and Dustin Dollin, and a range of co-branded apparel featuring a new speed check design. This is the second time that the two behemoths have joined forces.
Founded at the intersection of 704 E. Broadway and Warner Avenue in beautiful scenic Huntington Beach (where the stars come out at night to play), this Vans x Baker collection celebrates both brands’ heritage in skateboarding. The three pro skate shoes in the capsule feature custom Baker graphics and unique colorways for Vans’ Slip-On Pro, in Rowan speed check; the Era Pro, in Kader purple check; and the Old Skool Pro, in Dollin polka dots.
The shoes in this collection of course come with enhancements, like the Duracap reinforced rubber underlays in high-wear areas to provide lasting durability and better boardfeel, Ultracush HD sockliners to keep feet close to the board without packing out over time, and Vans’ highest level of impact cushioning.
Also in this collection are apparel featuring all-over print and speed check Vans x Baker motif, with a Vans x Baker Speed Check long-sleeved shirt in white, a Speed Check Camper 5-panel hat in black, an allover print hoodie, a short-sleeved button-down shirt, and a co-branded sock and T-shirt. The Vans x Baker holiday collection is now available at retailers and at Vans.com/skate. And shop our Baker 4 deck selection in The Canteen!
