Vans Tony Trujillo “TNT” II

29 08 2007

Tony Trujillo’s signature shoe, the TNT, is one of Vans most popular models. The TNT is considered by many to be one of the best skating shoes of all time. The TNT looks very similar to Rowley’s pro model, but this model features suede & nubuck upper with revamped cushioning. Below you can see the Gothic Grape/Paint Splat TNT lows & the Black/White TNT mids.

24 08 2007

The Vans Sky Gallery shows another artists customized pair by Cole Gerst. “Cole Gerst is an artist, illustrator, designer and animator based in the Mount Washington area of LA. He is the founder and art director of option-g visual communication. Gerst began his career in the music business designing cd covers and posters for such bands as The Shins, Modest Mouse, Beck, Elliot Smith and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Here is a little background on the Vans Sky Gallery:

In 2007, Vans will undertake an unprecedented art program in Los Angeles, bringing together six of the area’s top emerging and recognized art talents by featuring their original work on a prominent billboard in the city.

For the duration of the project these six artists’ work will appear for two months at a time and culminate with a group show at a local gallery next November, presented by Vans. In addition, Vans will make a $1,000 donation to the local charity of each artist’s choice, on their behalf, giving back to the city that has given the company and these artists so much.

Vans Flannel Pack AGAIN!!!

24 08 2007

So, just a couple days ago I showed you the blue models of the Flannel Pack. As I told you there is going to be a set of red models, but other pictures have showed up which also show a black/dark grey set. These shoes are not syndicates nor vaults, just a regular general release, so they should be easier to come by than other hot pairs.

We first saw blue pairs of the Sk8 Hi and the Slip on, but the pictures below show an Era. This pack is pretty sick. I am hoping to see these pairs soon. Good luck getting yours!!

Vans x Marc Jacobs Sk8 Hi

22 08 2007

Marc Jacobs, Marc Jacobs, Marc Jacobs! I have shown many models of the new Fall 2008 Vans collection by Marc Jacobs and you know what, there are a couple more. As said before Marc Jacobs was sticking to the Slip On model, but we saw some Eras and now we have some Sk8 Hi’s.

These Sk8 Hi’s are pretty interesting. The colors reflect Marc Jacobs past Sk8 Hi’s, but with one more color added. These Sk8 Hi’s will probably sell out like all other Marc Jacobs Vans, but I am sure these are hitting Marc Jacobs stores and other Vans retailers now.

Vans Flannel Pack

20 08 2007

Vans is releasing a Slip On and a Sk8 Hi that are flannel inspired. This pack is actually very simple but holds its own. The pack is focused on a flannel blue colorway, with grey and black accents. This pack was shown on the Vans Fall ’07 line, and there is also suppose to be a red colorway that is suppose to drop.

I was very skeptical about how these shoes would look when I first saw samples, but Vans did an excellent job with the Sk8 His and the Slip Ons. These can be found at ZOZOTOWN. If you can order from there I suggest you do, but if not these should be hitting Vans spots.

Vans Vault Fall ’07 – Part II

20 08 2007

So as we all know Fall ’07 is coming up, which means a lot of new stuff is going to be dropping. Vans Vault is just one of the Vans line that has released pictures of the shoes that they will be dropping soon. Vans Vault always comes with some heat and this year they stuck with simple designs.

The Fall ’07 Vans Vault line stuck with the styles of Prison Issues, Slip Ons, Chukkas and Eras. The designs on this year’s line is very simple, from polka dots to ice grey solid colors. The polka dot designs actually look good because they are solid color polka dot rings. This Vans Vault line looks to be promising and should be sold out as quickly as a lot of other Vans this past year.

Be sure to keep a close eye out for these because I can guarantee you, people will sleep on these and want them after they are all sold out.
