To honor Jeff’s legacy, and ensure that future skaters understand the important role he played in shaping skateboarding’s history, Vans unveils a new iconic style: The Skate Grosso Mid. Supporting the Skate Grosso Mid is a special-edition Grosso Forever collection of apparel, with all net proceeds directed to Jeff’s son Oliver and his family.
Engineered for skateboarding, and made with a fully revised upper, molded heel counter, locked-in tongue straps, and a recut of the DURACAP™ underlay, the Skate Grosso Mid offers an essential fit that is more breathable and durable where skaters need it most. The two-part foxing, featuring a tougher toe knurl, ensures heightened board contact, and the original waffle outsoles are made of a rubber that offer grip and support. Along with a new sidewall finish, PopCush sockliners for superior cushioning and impact protection, and a sleek checkerboard flag, this Skate Grosso Mid builds on an iconic style with added performance benefits that real skaters demand. It is made with sturdy suede and canvas uppers.
“It’s you, your skateboard, and the world. So go out and make it your own.”
