VANS PRO - SK8-HI X SKATEISTAN
Costa Mesa, CALIF. – Vans, the global leader in skateboarding for more than 50 years, teams up with award-winning non-profit organization Skateistan on a new mission-driven collection of footwear and apparel highlighting community unity, self-expression and creativity. Founded in Afghanistan to empower youth through skateboarding and education, Skateistan has been elevated to the global stage with skateboarding and educational projects across Cambodia, South Africa, Jordan, Bolivia and Kenya. The spirit of community collaboration comes to life across Vans x Skateistan’s new collection, with Vans to donate $200k to Skateistan to support the development of skateboarding.
With a shared belief that skateboarders can make the world a better place through the power of skateboarding, Skateistan and Vans drew inspiration from Skateistan’s skate school students to create an original and truly uplifting take on the Skate Sk8-Hi, Skate Era, Skate Slip-On, and a head-to-toe apparel collection for men, women, and kids.
