Vans Crockett Pro

Crockett Pro Independent 540x301 Vans Crockett Pro
When given the chance to design his own pro model for Vans, Gilbert Crockett went the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” route for the all new Crockett Pro. The best part of the shoe is that it doesn’t look new. Above is the super rad collab edition with Independent, check the other two colorways and a video after the jump.

There’s really an endless set of possibilities for what you can do to a pair of Vans Old Skools and almost no way to make the shoe wack in the process. A prime example are these new frost grey and red/gold joints with snake skin accents. Do we wear snakeskin, hell no, but we wold wear these. Get them at DQM. More looks after the jump.

RapidWeld Collection Vans Syndicate | Rapidweld “S” Pack
Vans has had a lock on heritage styles for more than a minute so its super rad to them them pushing forward with a release like the Syndicate Rapidweld “S” Pack. Putting a stitchless outer shell and a “Luxliner” inner glove on two of their most iconic silhouettes of all time, the Sk8-Hi and the Old Skool Vans delivers an ultra light version of a classic for the future. Sick.

We’ve been pretty harsh on the new Skytop IV so thought it would only be fair to give Supra a chance to explain what the hell they were thinking when they came up with the new design. Unfortunately, once they brought Star Wars into the mix they lost us. The Force is not to blame for those ear muffs.

SUPRA SKYTOPIV RED Press 3000x2000 Stack2 Supra | Red Skytop IV
Seeing this picture of the new Skytops rocking their furry little Christmas ear warmers makes us think we finally understand what smh means. Why Chad Musksa, why? We don’t even think you’d wear these things, leave all that craze to Jeremy Scott, please. To those so inclined, there are more looks after the jump.

Following up the dope Hammer Snake release comes another pair of kicks from Supra that we are feeling. The Wolf is a shoe/boot hybrid with super clean lines and one of the best names for a shoe on the market. Peep the black after the jump and get a pair here.

snake hero Supra | Hammer Snake
While we weren’t blown away by Supra’s last big release, the Skytop IV, we gotta give it to them for following strong with the Hammer Snake. Even though you’d think trying to make a faux snakeskin skate shoe could end up being a disaster, Supra nailed it with this simple yet ultra detailed remake of Greco’s signature kick. Look for them only at Supra’s 250 Crown Coalition retailers. Full detailed looks after the jump.

Supra Skytop IV

SKYTOPIV BLK HERO 1800x1200 Supra Skytop IV
On Black Friday Supra is set to release the Skytop IV, the latest iteration of the Chad Muska inspired sneaker that literally changed the template for skate shoes. Debuting in a clean black waxed suede and red colorway, the IV’s have a nice slightly more chill look than previous Skytops, at least until you put the “shroud” on it and then it looks like one of those horrible Spectre Chimera’s, so we don’t recommend doing that. Full looks after the jump.
