Gilbert Crockett Pro 2 - Shoe Review

Durable, functional, stylish, and light.

The Vans Crockett Pro 2 is a shoe that is just the right blend of sport functionality and skate.

Gilbert Crockett is a stone cold sober connoisseur of skateboarding.

When vans first visited him in his home he was there learning to make shoes.. By hand.. Just to see how they work.

Vans appreciates the DIY soul of skateboarding and nowhere is that seen quite like with Gil.


Come to the shop today and try a pair on!
