Vans’ Original Style 36 Gets the Dane Reynolds Treatment
Inspired by Vans’ original footwear silhouette known today as the Old Skool, Vans partners 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.
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.
Raw, powerful and progressive, Dane Reynolds’ technical style was honed at the internationally-revered point breaks that surround his hometown of Ventura, CA. An artist on and off his surfboard, Reynolds’ improvisational style can also be found in his artwork, illustrations, personalized boards and homemade surf videos. Reynolds continues to push the boundaries of the sport through his experimental surf persona, naturally making him one of the greatest free surfing talents to date.
