Mongoose and Vans, two iconic brands that popularized Southern California BMX and skate culture, have teamed up with designer Our Legends to create a collection of special edition footwear and apparel to celebrate their shared heritage. The Vans x Mongoose collection presented by Our Legends drops August 12.
In 1966, Vans was born with its first production shoe model, the Style #44 DX, which took the skateboarding world by storm and went on to become the legendary Authentic. In 1974, Mongoose came to life with its groundbreaking Motomag wheels, which ultimately transformed the sport of BMX and defined the aesthetics of the era in action sports. This month, the brands come together to commemorate these bold, foundational styles in the form of classic Mongoose colorways on the original Authentic silhouette.
