Skateboarder magazine has been around since the beginning of the skate era and three of the most popular models skaters wore during that time, were the Era, the ’77 Mid Skool, and the Old Skool. This year, Vans and Skateboarder magazine collaborate on an entire capsule dedicated to the very beginnings of the magazine. The capsule collection will consist of the original designs and colors, and clothing to go along with the 3 vans models. To give you a bit of history of Skateboarder Magazine,
Introduced in 1964 as a spin-off of surf magazines of the period, Skateboarder Magazine had many ups and downs over the past 48 years but remains historically the first medium that contributed to the visibility and culture of skateboarding, especially since the mid-70s with the the first real generation of skateboarders, aka the Zephyr Team of Dogtown (who were famously sponsored by Vans).
Stay tuned for release info for this upcoming collaboration capsule. Via FNG
