That vision, captured in a short film on the brand, has led Quasi to recognition for its meticulous commitment to quality and out-of-the-ordinary graphics. It’s also what makes them a perfect fit for a new Vans collaboration launching September 24 at select skate shops, and featuring two fresh colorways of the Crockett High Pro and a vintage utilitarian tote. One of the most detail-oriented skaters ever, Gilbert is known for his painstaking approach — not just in his skating, but also in the design process of his pro shoe and apparel. The new Vans x Quasi collection represents that ethos.
The Crockett High Pro elevates Gilbert’s classic pro model, transforming it into a high-top for enhanced performance, with early 20th century basketball and military boot inspired lines. The two new Quasi colorways – true white/surf the web and black/blue — give a nod to Crockett’s love for thrifting, art, and vintage style. Reinforcing a retro athletic look, the puffy mesh and true-blue hits of the true white/surf the web colorway illustrates a ‘70s sporty materialization. The Crocket High Pro in black/blue references military origins as well as vintage Vans high-tops for a more traditional materialization.
