Vans Debuts New Footwear and Apparel Collection

Vans debuts a new signature footwear and apparel collection, inspired by a leader in skate progression, Anthony Van Engelen. The collection is built for performance and includes shoes, outerwear, tees, pants, shorts, and accessories, in classic style.

Cypress, CALIF. (March 8, 2016) – The epitome of classic style and innovation emerges in Vans’ all-new signature footwear and apparel collection by pro skateboarder Anthony Van Engelen, available worldwide beginning March 12.

An influential leader in skate progression as attested to by his peers through career-high accolades in 2015, Anthony Van Engelen expresses timeless style and performance in Vans’ new AV Rapidweld Pro model, featuring a stitchless Rapidweld™ shell with a welded DURACAP™ upper reinforcement.

The AV Rapidweld Pro brings a minimalist tech aesthetic to the forefront, while still providing the impactful performance results in construction and design. Combined with a comfort-enhancing LUXLINER™ inner glove, and built atop Vans’ proven PRO VULC outsole, AVE’s bold new model is the ultimate blend of lightweight, responsive durability.

AVE’s new signature footwear model is supported by a full line of apparel and accessories, with subtle tech functionality hidden in the details. The highlight piece is the AV Holser windbreaker, a stealth black nylon ripstop jacket with a water-resistant microporous coating, and critically taped seams and underarm vents.

Supporting pieces include a selection of bold bottoms including black and white denim pants, a pair of walk shorts, and a variety of tops. The spring Anthony Van Engelen collection is distinguished by the custom AV eagle crest labeling package across this signature footwear and apparel offering.
