VANS just announced the release of another signature colorway in their Old Skool Pro BMX shoe, this time with none other than Matthias Dandois. I mean, if you're going to get someone on the team to design their own colorway (there's a t-shirt too) then you can't go wrong with this French style cat. Here's some info from VANS...

"This holiday, Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, proudly drops a brand-new Matthias Dandois signature colorway in the Old Skool Pro BMX. The global team rider and seven-time world freestyle champion’s shoe-of-choice represents an upgraded Vans classic, enhanced for BMX-specific performance with a first-of-its-kind Wafflecup outsole meant to increase support and pedal feel."

"The Matthias Dandois signature colorway adds a playful-yet-purposeful pop of color among an otherwise sea of black. Infusing his personality into the shoe, Matthias has added his custom “Dent-Doigt” (pronounced “daen-dwah,” like his namesake) heel graphic, which translates to “tooth-finger” in English.

A visual depiction comes to life on the custom UltraCush insole, all developed by Matthias’ tattoo artist and friend, who inked the rider’s original inspiration for the graphic: a tattoo on his right forearm."

"Vans UltraCush HD sockliner delivers the highest level of impact cushioning, keeping the foot close to the pedal without packing out over time. The shoe is built with Vans Wafflecup BMX sole, the sport’s first-ever vulcanized cupsole, specifically designed to improve support without sacrificing grip and pedal-feel. The Old Skool Pro BMX is complete with Duracap, reinforcing high abrasion zones and prolonging the life of the shoe.

A 185-gram, 100% ringspun cotton long-sleeve T-shirt accompanies Matthias’ signature colorway shoe." - VANS
