Vans is thrilled to work with Krooked Skateboards to bring together Natas Kaupas and Ray Barbee, two of skateboarding's most innovative legends and pioneers. Ray and Natas bring to life a cooperation built in iconic creative expression and authenticity as the epitome of creative expression through art, music, and culture.
The release features a Half Cab & Slip-on
The Vans x Krooked collection proudly launches the Vans Checkerboard Union (VCU), a Vans Skateboarding division focused on experimental footwear technologies and structures, limited-edition collaborations, and skate basics that take their culture and communities to new heights.
The Vans Checkerboard Union, like the Checkerboard print, brings together the best independent skate shops and partners from across the world to offer what matters most to Vans to the people who matter most to them. Skaters!
