Vans pro rider Geoff Rowley just got his newest signature model dubbed the ‘Rowley Special’. The shoe features a wider fit, with more toe room, and boasts more comfort. This is Geoffs eleventh signature shoe on the brand in the last nine years . The shoe has been tested and perfected by Geoff Rowley to withstand rigorous skateboarding abuse, all while maintaining a timeless style. It is inspired from a cult classic skate shoe, the Vans ‘Lampin’ which debuted in the early 90s when many skaters preferred Puma Clydes or Adidas Campus. The shoe improves on the original ‘Lampin’ design by improving the upper with reinforced suede. The Geoff Rowley Special also features a slimmer profile and the undeniable classic Vans vulcanized waffle sole for ultimate flexibility and grip.
