Two respected leaders in skateboarding, Vans and Independent Truck Co., join forces for the latest installment of their collaboration series. The new Vans x Independent collection brings to life an extensive footwear and apparel collection that combines Vans’ emblematic checkerboard motif with Independent’s distinguished cross logo. In celebration of Independent’s 40th anniversary, the collection is bigger and better, epitomizing skate apparel staples, classic footwear styles, and an unbreakable skate partnership for the ages.
Unified by meticulous details that celebrate Independent’s historic reputation in skateboarding, the Vans x Independent collection includes footwear classics such as the Sk8-Hi Pro and Slip-On Pro, along with a customized rendition of Tony Trujillo’s signature shoe, the TNT Advanced Prototype. Each footwear style embodies the look and feel of a classic Independent truck, with metallic silver foxing stripes and rubber outsoles that exactly match the signature translucent and glossy orange hue that is unique to Indy bushings.
