Vans Signature Pro Gilbert Crockett is the most detail oriented skater ever. Since joining the Vans family in 2009 Gilbert has been kind enough to share his unparalleled meticulousness via his skating and his Pro shoe & apparel designs. His 2015 two-song Propeller part was just a hint of what he is capable of on a board. Off it, cobbler Crockett once crafted a pair of shoes by hand from scratch just for the hell of it. It’s Gilbert’s personal artisanship that makes his skating and his collection unlike any other.
