Introducing the Vans Rowan Pro, the debut signature skate shoe for Vans global team rider and Baker Skateboards pro, Rowan Zorillla. The release is supported by an accompanying apparel collection. Vans have sought to create a collection that reflects Rowan’s unique ability on a skateboard - from his deep bag of tricks to his laid back style.

The Rowan Pro skate shoe features two new innovations for the Vans Pro Skate line. The first is SickStick. SickStick is a special gum rubber compound  created by Vans. It is calibrated in the sole and foxing of shoe in order to deliver enhanced grip and greater durability. Creating the grippiest gum sole in Vans' history.

The second is PopCush. A new Vans foam recipe that’s tuned to improve impact protection - giving you greater cushioning and increased energy return from the sole, meaning less fatigue over the course of a day skating.

The Rowan Pro, of course, features Vans Duracap technology. Duracap adds reinforced underlays to high-wear areas of the shoe, enhancing durability and prolonging the life of the shoe.

Rowan’s apparel collection features an stylish black denim Drill Chore Coat and some great looking double-knee denim V96 Relaxed/RZ utility pants. There are distinctive t-shirt graphics and a label pack designed by artist, and owner of Lotties Skate Shop, Mike Gigliotti. The Rowan collection brings together a balanced combination of hard wearing functional skate clothing and accessible fashion.
