With this second collaborative project between the Quasi skateboard brand and Vans, Gilbert Crockett delved deep into the Vans archives to reintroduce a somewhat obscure silhouette, originally released back in 1994.
I think that I can vaguely remember seeing this one at the time but 1994 was a heavy year for soapbar so it’s possible I may be mistaken. Nonetheless, Quasi and Vans pro Gilbert Crockett is well known for his interest in vintage Americana and he’s come up trumps with this re-release.
With two new colourways (beige and navy), the original 1994 silhouette has received updates to the suede construction, along with additional tumbled leather detailing and reinforced stitching in key abrasion areas.
You’ll also find custom foxing tape, plus a removable Ultracush HD cushioning footbed and Duracap reinforced uppers to add the extra durability and functionality expected from a Vans Pro Skate shoe.
