A couple of skateboarding’s biggest names cross paths with this new release from the Vans Core lineup, each bringing to market a no-nonsense lowtop that combines classic Off the Wall styling with modern performance advantages. We’ll start with the Tony Trujillo’s long-running signature line, the new Vans TNT 5 Low looking the part of a summertime everyday-er thanks to white suede and canvas contrasted by just enough orange and black to turn heads. And while you’re turning, have a look at Anthony Van Engelen’s Sk8-Lows in tonal blue plus a red foxing stripe, a marker that reminds us these designs’ molded polyurethane sockiners add extra comfort to the most gripping waffle base you can get this side of a fried chicken dinner. Check them out in greater detail below, then head straight to the source to find these at the DQM for Vans General store.
