Vans is uncontested as making the first skateboard specific shoe since 1966. They’ve been at the forefront of bringing the skateboard lifestyle and culture nationally and globally. After a few decades of a rumored skate video project, Propeller makes its debut for this respected footwear brand and is easily the most anticipated skate video in a long time. It premiered April 21st at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, CA for the first time.
With Greg Hunt at the helm as cinematographer and director, it is sure to be a visual spectacle. Hunt has an extensive past in skateboarding videography and is well known for his incredible creative style. He has directed some of our favorite videos including Mind Field, Dylan., The DC Video, Sight Unseen, Videoradio, and i.e and his video work can be seen in Alien Workshop’s Photosynthesis, Habitat’s Mosaic, and various videos that feature riders affiliated with the Workshop.
Vans has been a leader and supporter in the skateboard industry since skateboarding began, most notably their team has always been comprised of innovators and riders always pushing their physical limits. Just to name a few you can expect some serious footage from riders like Anthony Van Englen, Tony Trujillo, Geoff Rowley, Elijah Berle, Gilbert Crockett, Dustin Dollin, Chima Ferguson, Jeff Grosso John Cardiel, Steve Caballero, Jason Dill, Andrew Allen, and more.
Vans has been hard at work making some of the best looking and best skating shoes for a long time and we can’t wait to see what the team has in store when Propeller is released to the public on May 5th via itunes.
