Vans Presents: Lotties Skateshop | Skate | VANS

Skate shops are more than a place to buy product, they are the cornerstone of our skate family. Lotties Skateshop has quickly become a community hub and safe haven for young skaters in Los Angeles. Owner Mike Gigliotti’s love for the shop and the community is what truly makes this space special. Vans recently spent some time at Lotties to understand what inspires Mike to create art, elevate local talent, and preserve the skate shop subculture for generations to come.

Vans Presents: Lotties Skateshop | Skate | VANS


Founded in 2015 by two friends, Frog is less of a brand than it is a group of likeminded people who’ve come together through skateboarding. New York City transplants Chris Millic and Jesse Alba place Frog’s focus on fun and inclusivity, with graphics that serve as exercises in self-expression above all else—principles that comes through loud and clear in Vans’ latest short video about the brand and rising talent Nick Michel.



Sharing the same creative spirit with Vans, Frog Skateboards joins forces with the original action sports footwear and apparel brand on a first-of-its-kind collection that includes both men’s and women’s pieces. The offering is led by the Skate Old Skool, which is marked by a silicone charm Sidestripe that pops against an otherwise all-black upper. Playful elements emerge across the offering, including a multi-colored charm Checkerboard pattern and complementary foxing stripe on the Classic Slip-on.

For men’s apparel, the charm Checkerboard inspiration carries over into a classic short sleeve woven shirt. Frog extends its fun-loving aesthetic to the Versa Standard PO, a black water-resistant hoodie with a Frog Skateboards line drawing on the front, and colorful charms on the back. A white long sleeve tee features a Frog skateboards doodle graphic.

Leading the pack for women’s apparel is a heavy cotton jersey baby tee with colorful all-over Checkerboard print, a contrast neck, and logo screen print at the chest. A twill baseball cap tops it off with contrast stitching, an embroidered Vans logo on the front, and novelty frog and heart silicone patches that tie back to the Skate Old Skool.




Through a unique approach to skateboarding, Frog has earned its place as the torchbearer of fun within the evolving world of skateboarding. Garnering collaborations with brands like Noah NY, Frog has come into its own with Lo-Fi videos that include the likes of Brighton Zeuner and Nick Michel.
