Vans partners with Madrid Skateboards this fall to reissue the distinctive Vans x Madrid Sk8-Hi Pro featuring Madrid's iconic Flypaper graphic, available worldwide beginning August 20.
As both brands share significant milestones in 2016 – Vans' 50th anniversary and Madrid's 40th anniversary – Vans takes the opportunity to celebrate the two brands' storied roots in skateboarding with none other than the classic Sk8-Hi upgraded with modern performance technology built to withstand the wear and tear of skateboarding today.
Originally launched in 1987, the Vans x Madrid Sk8-Hi Pro joins an extended collection of Vans' 50th Anniversary Pro Classics in honor of heritage and progression. Available in select retailers globally, the Vans x Madrid Sk8-Hi Pro is modernized with performance innovation exclusively designed for skateboarding. With the original reinforced ollie pad and Madrid Flypaper covering the side panels, the revamped Vans x Madrid Sk8-Hi Pro will feature Vans' supportive ULTRACUSH HD sockliners for resilient cushioning and advanced comfort, combined with exposed DURACAP toe bumpers in high abrasion areas for premium durability.
