Vans joins forces with renowned BMX brand Haro to commemorate a history of classic BMX design with special editions of the Era and Sk8-Hi.
Taking design cues from Haro's first top-of-the-line BMX bicycle from 1984, the Freestyler, these two versions of the Era and Sk8-Hi feature checkerboard patterns and blue and green hues taken from the original bike. The Era gets a full heavy duty canvas build, while the Sk8-Hi also gets suede paneling. Each shoe also features Haro branding on tongue, "Freestyler" embroidered at the heel, and chrome lace grommets to complee the BMX look.
The Vans x Haro collection also includes vintage BMX-inspired apparel including t-shirts, hats and a retro BMX jersey. To complete the collection is a special limited edition reissue of the Haro Freestyler available only as a giveaway from Vans.com, Vans Facebook and Vans retail stores.
