The separation between skaters themselves and the fashion which advertises itself towards this, are completely different. ‘Vans’ is a prime suspect of being part of the skating culture, both sponsoring rock festivals, and providing new shoe trends, however, the brand also caters itself towards the skaters inside all of us.
