Most of Vans’ collaborations involve either relevant partner brands or skateboarders. Here’s one that gives one of the best skate photographers a new platform to express his view of the world of griptape. The Anthony Acosta x Vans Authentic Pro is a super clean mix of dark navy suede and canvas with a pristine white Waffle sole and multicolor laces that tie in the brown branding tags. There’s a blurry lights photo print on the UltraCush insoles that has a Vans logo in its short focus, and you’ll be able to snap a pic of yourself in them to post on social media with pairs arriving at retailers soon.
