Kuala Lumpur-based skate shop SHOWROOM sends out a strong statement with its groundbreaking SHOWROOM x Vans collaboration.
The SHOWROOM x Vans “21:30” collection pays homage to 9.30pm, the time when many in SHOWROOM’s skate community take to the pavement on their boards.
Tweaking Vans’ Sk8 Hi Pro and Old Skool Pro models to what could be called “skater’s perfection”, the panels are coated with 3M material that lends visibility and shine at night.
A balance of form and function, this reflectivity also adds style to flash photos taken when a skater is in mid-air, executing that picturesque trick.
Interchangeable velcro sidestripes give skaters the choice of either a plain white or Vans’ iconic checkered pattern, while a debossed “SHOWROOM x Vans” logo on the right heel puts an exclamation mark on this inaugural collab.
Rounding up the aesthetics are Duracap midsoles and translucent icy outsoles, making this collection all the more sought after.
Available exclusively at SHOWROOM from December 9th, the Sk8 Hi Pro and Old Skool Pro are priced at RM359 and RM329 each.
