You would be hard pressed to find a more ubiquitous brand than Thrasher these days. It seems like everybody from elementary schoolers to sorority girls are wearing the classic flame logo. It's gotten to the point that even Thrasher has made knockoff Tharsher tees. Getting back to skate roots (not that they have strayed), the 36 year old brand has teamed up with Vans Skate to produce a fiery collection.
The footwear collection consists of five pairs all in Pro silos: two Slip Ons, the new UltraRange, and two Sk8 His. Each will feature auede and canvas uppers with the UltraRange and one of the Sk8 His sporting black and gum outsoles. The classic flame branding adorns a Slip On and Sk8 Hi while the other Slip On boasts a checkered ankle collar and rubber baphomet logo stitched onto the vamp tongue.
The apparel also hits hard with good use of the flames logo. I am a big fan of meshing of the classic Vans turtle logo with the flames. There is almost too much to list here, so be sure you check out the album to get a full idea of what's coming our way this weekend.
the Vans Skate x Thrasher collection will release this Saturday, July 29th, at select Vans Skate stockists like Kinetic. Select pieces from the collection will also be available at Vans.com. Prices range from $39 to $169.
