I was lucky enough to get to pick 2 pairs of Vans from the new releases at JD Sports and let me tell you, that was not an easy task, I wanted them all!
I finally made my decision and went with the Yellow/check Sk8 Hi, being an 80’s baby this for me is a legendary and nostalgic piece, I slayed many a pair of when I was younger throwing myself and my break-less bmx about (I can’t skate to save my life)!
My second but equally loved pick was the Black/check oldskool, the first of the low vans silhouettes to don the iconic side stripe!
As we know Vans have been off the wall since 1966, 50 years old and going strong, but I’m not going to bore you with words! Sit back and watch the full story on this video!
