VANS scene & not herd; OFF THE WALL OFFER!


today we reach our capacity of 100 items on our online shop & also mark the end of our 'scene' feature. of course some of those 100 have already SOLD, however we will continue to roll out the original heat in substitute!
to conclude our 'scene' profile we offer an off the wall offer to challenge any. the beauty of the printed midsole is obvious to the eye however the true integrity of original vans lies in their utility & wearability. as such, the scarcity of originals however means they are only scene & not herd. today we hope to change that for a discounted price!

an interesting 'peace' of vans custom culture history featuring opposing toe & heel prints & rare 'save the planet' printed scene. these have seen plenty of action & show significant separation between uppers & midsole throughout, however still have life in them for those special occasions or display. we are currently working on restoration methods for our original vans however there is also a romantic appeal about the untouched/thrashed.

ok i am officially obsessed with the 'factory' look of 80's bmx race & freestyle, & more poignant for me the culture of coordinated 2-tone vans #95's, #38's, & #36. bi-toal heat!

This is the rad! despite having been re-released at least 3 times this collab never fails to please, however the re-issues fall well short of the originals. having only just been re-released last year, the blue rad scene is found here on a custom tie dye slip-on from circa 1986. i remember watching rad when i was a kid & despite being overshadowed (in australia at least) by bmx bandits, it nevertheless stayed with me. watching it again over 25 years later i am still impressed. of course the john farnham soundtrack of power ballads is cringeworty & the bmx dancefloor courtship full of cheese, the bmx remains totally legit. i dont remember a film earlier than this so laden with product placement. but give the rad team credit as they don't try to make it subliminal & rather throw it in your face. from mongoose to GT, coke to vans. the vans details are amazing including the token vans display in 'miss shop' or 'rag city', the vans bmx team & of course cru jones in style #24 high tops. i understand the decision to put small town kid cru in black highs that look like converse, but i dont understand why mongoose pretty-boy bart taylor wears the same pair. would have been much more fresh seeing him in rad scene style #36 old skools or better yet these marble slip-ons!
