Sidestripe model’s legacy gets tweak from America's favorite surfer
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 11 January, 2018 - Costa Mesa - Inspired by Vans’ original footwear silhouette known today as the Old Skool, Vans partnered with pro surfer Dane Reynolds to introduce the Style 36 Decon SF. As an homage to the ubiquitous Sidestripe model’s legacy of more than 40 years, the new Style 36 Decon SF presents Dane Reynold’s imaginative vision and original artwork on a timeless canvas footwear form. Reynolds’ custom-designed colorway brings his original sketches to life while offering a tailored, lightweight construction.
An artist on and off his surfboard, Reynolds’ improvisational style can also be found in his artwork, illustrations, personalized boards and homemade surf videos.
The Style 36 Decon SF features a newly refined shape, emphasizing deconstructed canvas uppers, molded UltraCush sockliners, and reduced rubber toe caps. Showcasing Reynolds’ yin and yang-esque illustrations across the outsoles and footbeds, the Style 36 Decon SF is crafted with black and red canvas and suede uppers and classic waffle rubber outsoles wrapped in a retro marshmallow color foxing tape. In addition to the Style 36 Decon SF, Vans complements Reynolds’ signature assortment with a coordinating Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF and a comfy pair of Vans Slide-Ons to match.
