Vans' 25th Anniversary of the Half Cab Vault Collection
Posted on December 07 2017
Originally released as a mid-top version of skateboarding’s first-ever signature pro model shoe—the Half Cab® was created in direct response to the demands of a new generation of skateboarders changing the game and taking skateboarding back out onto the streets after the vert riding heyday of the 1980s.
“In ’91 I noticed that a lot of street skaters were cutting my shoe halfway down and wearing them that way,” Steve Caballero remembers, “So in ’92, I gave Vans the idea to make a lower-cut shoe and call it the Half Cab®.”
Vans listened and a new silhouette was introduced-the Half Cab. An icon was born and countless other shoe companies would eventually go on to release their own version of the original Vans classic that has remained in Vans’ footwear lineup to this day, making the Half Cab® the longest running, continuously produced signature shoe of all time.
In celebration of 2017 as the 25th Anniversary of the Half Cab®, Vault by Vans releases four-piece footwear offering that includes two OG Full Cab LX in silver and blue leather iterations, and two OG Half Cab LX in black and white leather options.
