If there ever was a vanguard of the global skateboarding scene, Thrasher magazine would be it. For over three decades, Thrasher has put skateboarding in the spotlight in its own brash, unapologetic way. Month after month, the magazine showcases the very best in skateboarding, bringing to light some of the world’s top notch skaters like Tony Hawk, Chris Cole and Danny Way. The magazine has also inspired streetwear’s leading brands with high-profile collaborations that get swooped up in a heartbeat and are spotted on celebrities and style influencers.
With such a rich, authentic legacy in skate culture and tradition, a collaboration with another iconic skate brand was destined to be. Vans has been a propelling force on the skate scene for as long as it has existed, crafting footwear and clothing that helps skaters at every level push the outer envelope of their skills. Bringing their vast shared experience to bear upon this collaborative project, the Vans X Thrasher collection is not just another style mash-up, it is the coming together of two skate giants in a fusion of design and functionality to create definitive skate wear pieces that resonate across the skateboarding community. This scorching collection merges Vans’ years of skate know-how with Thrasher magazine’s edgy style to turn up the heat on your skate and streetwear outfits.
