A 50th anniversary is a big deal, and Vans is celebrating in style with the release of a collection of limited edition classic shoes. With deep roots in BMX in over the last four decades, it would be pretty much impossible show up to any session at the park, trails, race track, or on the street and not see at least one pair of Vans amongst any crew. In fact for most of  the eighties wearing a pair of Vans was pretty much a way to identify as a BMX rider worldwide.. and the original versions of some of these shoes were pretty much synonymous with BMX riding during that period, and even since. Vans has big plans for the year, including the premiere of their first full length BMX DVD, so there's a lot to be excited about...

"Anecdoted by its original year of release, each style in the Vans Pro Classics Anniversary Collection pays homage to influential cultural milestones from Vans groundbreaking era of 1966-2000. What began as simple renovations in color, fabric and shape bolstered true connections with action sports icons" - Vans
