The release of Tony Trujillo’s 7th Vans signature skateboard shoe is unlikely to have escaped your attention if you spend any time on any of the skateboarding-related websites of the universe.
If you’ve only just got the Internet though, you can catch up on the proper-good-laugh Vans TNT Advanced Prototype Launch at the House of Vans here and/or peep the full range of shoes and associated TNT apparel here.
Just in case that’s not enough for you – we also decided to take a pair of these new Vans skate shoes out for a test run utilizing the quick feet of UK Vans flow rider and all-round lovely human being, Josh Gregory. Given that JMan resides in the Milton Keynes area, it would’ve been spitting in the face of tradition to not head over to the Buszy and thus, that is exactly what happened.
Peep quick footed game below…
As we’re on the topic, and because he stepped up and handled this like the good lad he is – for those unaware of Josh Gregory – you could do a lot worse than to check out his mini ‘welcome to the team’ part from the recent The National Skateboard Co, (or NTSC to the abbreviation-happy among you) video clip, featuring the man himself skating everywhere from Kiev to Central Milton Keynes.
To make that easy for you – I’ve embedded said video below – if you missed it when it first came out, give it a watch now. To make it look like I know what I’m doing even more so, it’s probably worth reminding you that it’s not just Josh who rides for both The National and for Vans either, given that he’s also surrounded by fellow Vans heads such as Josh ‘Manhead’ Young and Denis Lynn. Disclaimer: other shoe team riders feature in the video below but as we’re concerned here with the mighty Waffle – forget about them, (not really).
