Justin Henry is just fun to watch. His clean, sturdy style makes tricks look the way you imagine them in your head. And he lands bolts, a lot. Growing up skating crusty, weather warped spots in and around his proud home state of Ohio taught Justin the value of putting in the work and making each try count. The effect is effortless style, whether skating impossibly perfect ledges in California or gritty stair sets in NYC. And it’s paying off. In 2018 alone Justin had a hard earned part in Quasi’s full length release Mother (2018), was a guest on acclaimed podcast The Bunt, and was featured in Thrasher’s "Am Scramble" video. Needless to say, we’re psyched to see what he drops next.

Vans Presents: Justin Henry's World Peace | Skate | VANS

Filmed earlier this year, Justin Henry’s World Peace uplifts the importance of rallying around community and youth, and fostering a kinder world with equality for all. Grounded in the brand values of inclusivity and being open to everyone, Vans believes this unifying message must be told, and stands in support with Justin as we continue to drive positive change. With strong ties to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio, and its local skateboard scene, Quasi Skateboards’ Justin Henry grew up skating crusty spots and learning the value of putting in work and making each try count. He invited Vans inside that world recently, recounting his journey from young talent to pro, and his determination to give back to the community that has shaped him. As part of an upcoming footwear collaboration with Justin Henry releasing July 6 at select skate retailers, Vans is giving back to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio with a $10k donation. Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mission supports one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
