VANS X HOCKEY

 

Andrew Allen is anything but typical. In a world of “good” skateboarders flooding the streets, he’s made his career stand out by constantly subverting the norms. His creative approach and zero-fucks-given attitude has earned him a cult following, not to mention secured his place on a board brand that embodies this same ethos: Hockey Skateboards.

It’s only natural, then, that Hockey would choose to dust off a little-known silhouette and upgrade it to meet the needs of today’s modern skater. Vans x Hockey is proud to introduce the Authentic High Pro as part of our newest collection Vans x Hockey Andrew Allen Edition, offered exclusively at Vans Pro Skate LTD accounts.

The impetus for Vans x Hockey’s collection was a catalog from the early 2000s, and a past silhouette, the Authentic High, that caught Andrew’s eye. The result is the Authentic High Pro, featuring an UltraCush footbed for superior support and boardfeel, and Duracap technology to reinforce underlays in critical high-wear areas prolonging the life of the shoe.

The hero colorway is an elevated cotton sateen and cotton twill upper with an external vulcanized rubber ollie patch. The heel scab logo receives a “shattered” treatment reminiscent of Hockey’s signature style, while the shoe’s interior is embroidered with Andrew’s name in his own handwriting.  A rudimentary make-shift graphic — a relic from previous Vans designs — appears throughout the collection, with a sly addition that bears a striking resemblance to the pro skater.
