As you will have seen last week, Vans launched the 7th Tony Trujillo Signature shoe with an old-school blow out at the House of Vans. No messing about, no greasing the palms of [shudder] ‘influencers’, just straight forward carnage, once again proving the maxim that ‘less is more’.
Skateboarding is at its best when it is reduced to its most basic elements – jump ramps, excitement, inclusivity and most of all – chaos.
If for whatever reason you managed to miss out on our coverage of the TNT Advanced Prototype Launch, you can catch up here via the magic blue letters earlier in this sentence.
And so – this leads us onto the engine of said fun Friday evening at the House of Vans – the physical release of the TNT Advanced Prototype shoe and its associated apparel range which happened across the nation on the 14th July.
As stated, this is the 7th Tony Trujillo signature shoe from Vans (you can see a brief overview of some of the previous ones below) and sees Vans updating every aspect of the TNT Advanced Prototype.
Aside from the construction specifics, one other thing of note here is that Vans have seen fit to release this iteration of the TNT skateboard shoe in a unisex size-break, which is something we’re genuinely surprised that more brands don’t embrace, especially given the current swell in numbers of both female and pint-sized skateboarders across the board. The size break for these runs from a diminutive UK 3.5, right up to a canoe-footed UK 13, so, unless you’re a pixie or a real-life giant – you’re covered.
