From the ground up

The nonprofit foundation created to introduce kids with autism to skateboarding, A.skate has partnered with Vans to present a collaborative footwear release for Spring 2014. The partnership welcomes the first-ever Era Laceless Pro performance model to the Vans Pro Skate line, and features Vans Pro Skate performance upgrades plus the added benefit of an easy closure option. The shoe features a custom “Obsessed to Skate” insole artwork by Jay Croft that calls out autism’s obsessive tendencies and brings awareness to A.skate’s mission. The A.skate x Vans Era Laceless Pro is now available online for $65 USD.
