ABOUT ARCHIVE ADVANCEMENT:
Archive Advancement Represents the pinnacle offering from the Vans Pro Skate collection. Vans Pro Skate ArcAd denotes an individually-numbered, limited-distribution product pipeline, created to elevate skateboarding performance footwear standards, while preserving Vans’ commitment to the upper echelon of influential core skate shops around the world.
Crafted in collaboration with Japanese artist and Vault by Vans designer Taka Hayashi, the Vans Pro Skate ArcAd Powell Peralta x TH collection commemorates a decades-long legacy of innovation in skateboarding, showcasing unforgettable imagery from Powell Peralta’s signature skate deck graphics archive. The capsule breathes life back into memorable illustrations such as the 1985 Future Primitive logo, Bones fonts, and the principal skull and sword graphics for which Powell Peralta is known.
Featuring elevated renditions of the Caballero Pro ArcAd and the Style 138 Pro ArcAd and limited to only 600 pairs worldwide, the capsule pays apropos tribute to the team that forever changed the face of competitive skateboarding in the 80s, the Bones Brigade, celebrating members such as Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain, Rodney Mullen, Tommy Guerrero and Jesse Martinez.
Known for his sharp attention to detail and premium material executions, Taka Hayashi reimagines his favorite Powell Peralta motifs on the Caballero Pro ArcAd and Style 138 Pro ArcAd. The Style 138 Pro includes a Powell Peralta Experimental tonal screen print on quarter panel, the Future Primitive logo embroidery on heel, and a woven Experimental crest & TH tongue label.
As one his favorite brands since childhood, Hayashi reminisces, “One of the first Powell Peralta boards I purchased was a Skull & Sword Ray “Bones” Rodriguez, created by Vernon Courtlandt Johnson, an artist I looked up to. I must have been ten years old at the time. I went in to Rip City Skate shop and was amazed with all the colors, graphics, and the unique shape of the boards, but that skull & sword really stood out to me.” This collection marks Taka Hayashi’s second Vans Pro Skate project, following the release of his 18th season of Vault by Vans designs this past September.
