In skateboarding, community is everything. Anywhere in the world, if you skate, you’ll find a home among the local scene. Australia’s Pass~Port has built a worldwide following by fostering skaters and creatives alike, pushing boundaries with rich and honest visuals backed by a feeling that what matters most is that you do whatever you do with soul. In honor of this spirit, Vans Pro Skate unveils a limited-edition Pass~Port Sid Pro and matching Bomber Jacket to mark the second collaboration between the two authentic skateboarding brands.
Defined by an embossed allover brick pattern, Pass~Port’s new Vans collection is inspired by local spot “Fitzy Plaza” located in Edinsburgh Gardens, North Fitzroy. The burnt red brick community building and the lush green footy fields surrounding the spot were a direct influence on the shoes and jacket design. With custom tongue labels and embroidered Pass~Port logos on the instep and heel, the Sid Pro—a reintroduced 90s Vans style almost exclusively utilized as a silhouette for collaboration—references the digger man motif often seen in Pass~Port graphics and the brand’s retro visuals inspired by skate videos of decades past.
