Vans X No Comply
December 7, 2020

Vans x Fucking Awesome

The New AVE Pro Featuring Premium tumbled leather and glowing orange hues elevate Vans' most technical skate shoe to date.

The perfect union of two brands rooted in breaking the mold, Vans and Fucking Awesome have partnered to introduce an exclusive new take on the AVE Pro, with elevated details that speak to a shared vision of uncompromising standards.

The Vans x FA AVE Pro will be available worldwide on December 10, 2020, at select Vans Skate retailers and online.



Designed by and created for longtime Vans team rider and FA Co-founder Anthony Van Engelen, the Vans x FA AVE Pro features tumbled leather —a first for this silhouette—with a breathable mono-mesh ripstop textile and a custom translucent rubber molded tongue label.

These details have been rolled up into the most technically advanced skate shoe Vans has ever made. The AVE Pro combines Duracap reinforced underlays on high-wear areas to provide lasting durability, while RapidWeld no-sew technology eliminates bulk with advanced stitchless upper panel welding. The result is a stronger, more flexible, and lighter build than conventional stitching.




A molded heel counter and Vans LuxLiner integrates the tongue and internal lining to deliver a comfortable, breathable, and responsive fit. The shoe is grounded on UltimateWaffle construction, the perfect combination of unrivaled support and grip thanks to an internal shank and built-in impact cushioning.

The Vans x FA AVE Pro is offered in two colorways, one exclusive to FA and the other for the best skate shops worldwide. The latter features an all-over black colorway, reflective Sidestripe, and a glowing orange midsole and details. The radiant outsole colors tie the stark contrasting colorways together, along with FA's custom Vans heel scab, label and "Hurt your eyes" print on the sockliner and packaging.

Founded by Anthony Van Engelen and Jason Dill, Fucking Awesome is one of the most influential brands in skate without ever trying to be. Thriving on being offensive, FA makes small quantities of boundary-pushing designs that are some of the most coveted in skateboarding, and consistently informs style across the board. 

The Vans x FA AVE Pro will be available worldwide on December 10, 2020, at select Vans Skate retailers and online.
