They must have decided that one release a month from the Artist Series wasn’t quite enough to celebrate 20 years of Steve Caballero’s best loved Vans signature, because Off the Wall is already offering a collection we would have expected come 2017.  With proceeds to benefit the A.skate Foundation’s mission in faith and determination, the Vans Half Cab 20th Anniversary Artist Collection brings together twenty-five noteworthy artists for special auction-only custom creations.  Names like Shepard Fairey, Mofo and Steve himself contributed handcrafted Half Cabs that you can see individually below.  Let us know which is your favorite and get your bids in to A.Skate and help “move beyond awareness to action” by clicking through to the auctions on eBay.

Vans is readying the next sneaker in the Artist Series set of releases for the Vans Half Cab, this time aligning that 20 year old icon with another pop culture milestone that’s nearing its 30th year, Metallica’s debut album Kill ‘Em All. The record turns thirty next year, with that birthday being preceded by this deep and dark release that sports plenty of references to the piece of work, including some lyrics from “Motorbreath” etched into the jet black midsoles. Click through with us to check out the latest installment in the Metallica x Vans saga and look out for these next month at select skate shops like Blacklist.

Vans Half Cab Denim – Pewter

September 9th, 2012 by | No comments

vans half cab denim pewter Vans Half Cab Denim   Pewter

Especially compared to the recent Nice Kicks collabo designs it feels a bit of a stretch to nickname this latest Vans Half Cab ‘Denim’, but it indeed carries a good portion of this distinguishing material.  But placed next to large stretches of suede in a very similar shade of Pewter, these don’t give off the same ‘jeanswear’ vibe as the majority of denim designs.  Instead, it sets them apart from the substantial library of suede Half Cabs released over the years (*except for those In4Mation collabos), and you can see for yourself below whether that warrants a purchase from Off the Wall retailers like CNCPTS.

Vans Half Cab Pro “Steve Cab” – Available

In 1977, Tony Alva transformed Vans’ standard Authentic deck shoe into a true skateboarding design by adding ankle padding for comfort and protection and a heel cup for strength.  Another dozen or so years later, Off the Wall legend Steve Caballero got his first signature model, then began working in the opposite direction.  Cab decided to copy what he’d seen with other skaters and scissor off his already-cushy signature hightops, and the Vans Half Cab was born.  This new Artist Series release from Vans Pro Classics (a select collection of which Alva’s Era is one of the other two models) features a 1992 copyright and a Caballero dragon that looks like it came straight from a classic Powell deck, along with a bold crimson suede upper that’s available now from The General.

Vans Half Cab Artist Series – Steve Caballero Edition

Vans has been celebrating the 20th anniversary of Steve Caballero’s midtop signature model all year and this latest design comes full circle with the ‘artist’ responsible for the scissored-off silo itself.  The Vans Half Cab Artist Series gets dipped in burgundy suede courtesy of the legendary Mr. Cab, and the effort is made all the more special thanks to a classic Powell-esque dragon and Japanese characters on the ’20 Years’ ankle tag.  Vans has only selectively experimented with this signature design element, so this preview makes us wonder what might be in store for the Half Cab’s second score.  The Artist Series will continue to issue monthly installments after Mofo’s June and Dirty Donny’s July designs, so check out more photos below, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for the exact release date on this August drop.  via Complex

Vans Half Cab – Spring/Summer 2013 Preview

vans half cab spring summer 2013 Vans Half Cab   Spring/Summer 2013 Preview

The pastel island print we previewed on a pair of Sk8-His for early 2013 was unique compared to what we’ve seen from Vans or really any other brand, but as for this latest preview from Bread & Butter, you could write out a description that should match up with an exact picture in mind.  The Vans Half Cab is pictured above in the traditional four-color camouflage range, a pattern that’s been rounded off a la Bape and accented with black suede like we’ve seen from Gourmet.  Combining the influences of a couple of trendsetters with Off the Walls inimitiable California cool results in another winner and you can see those plus a couple of suede designs with Pushead-esque bleached underlays, all after the jump below.  Photos: EUkicks

Dirty Donny x Vans Vault Half Cab

Appropriating the Stooges’ most famous song by calling himself a “streetwalking cheetah with a hand full of crayons,” ‘Dirty’ Donny Gillies makes reference to the ease with which he blended playful binder-worthy imagery with the rebellious energy of influential rock subcultures.  Dirty Donny has crafted artwork for bands like The Melvins, Queens of the Stone Age and Metallica, and now he’s joining in Off the Wall’s 20th anniversary celebration for one of their most iconic silos.  The Dirty Donny x Vans Half Cab pairs royal blue suede with Donny’s unique branding tags for a look that’s both familiar and unlike any of the others from this birthday set.  Check them out in greater detail below and get ready for Dirty Donny’s Half Cabs to arrive at Vans Vault dealers like Hot Rod later this month.  via N-SB
