VANS X WADE GOODALL COLLECTION
When it comes to unbridled creativity and a nonconformist approach both in and out of the surf, few have the gravitas of Australian artist and Vans pro surfer Wade Goodall, the creative phenom behind the groundbreaking surf-cinema epic, Pentacoastal.
Wade’s obsession with functionality and dynamic design is on full display with the Vans x Wade Goodall Destruct SF. This piece de resistance has an all-black aesthetic with rugged rubber reinforcement on high-wear areas that makes it nearly indestructible. Leather uppers, white contrast stitching, and bold yellow laces elevate Wade’s Destruct SF, making it one of the most unique workhorse shoes around.
Wade’s Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF offers black suede quarters with black leather vamp and detailing, white contrast stitching, electric blue laces, and black star sidewall art on a white sole. Evoking the boots worn to frenzied basement shows of the early British punk scene, Wade’s Slip-On SF is an all-black suede and leather shoe with white contrast stitching and a colorful embroidery that pops off the vamp. The Destruct SF, Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF and Slip-On SF offer a removable UltraCush footbed for all-day comfort.
The highly versatile Vans x Wade SS woven shirt in seedpearl, a creamy off-white, is great for dressing up or dressing down and features subtle details like a single button pocket and black Vans embroidered patch above the hem. The bust is back on the Vans x Wade SS Tee, framed by colorful flowers and white stars in a composition that’s playful-yet-understated.
The Vans x Wade Jockey Hat completes the collection with a flat-brimmed style that comes in dirt, a neutral brown, with a seedpearl embroidered Vans logo.
