Battling big spots requires as much mental stamina as it does physical ability. Throw in a complete lack of regard for what’s possible and you’ve landed at what makes Kyle Walker special. Since joining Vans in 2013, he's earned a signature shoe with a barrage of footage that not only challenges his personal standards, but the actual perception of what’s conceivable. Along with being one of the fastest to secure a shoe, he added Thrasher's "Skater of the Year," award to his resume in 2016, becoming one of the youngest pros to earn the honor.

Hailing from “Tornado Alley” Oklahoma, Kyle Walker was bred on unpredictability and true grit. His leap from Vans’ Propeller (2015) to Vans’ lauded "No Other Way" not only showed his loose precision going further than convention but that you can somehow make annihilating the longest kinked rails and biggest, stomach dropping gaps ever put to video look casual. In fact, he's acknowledged that some of his biggest feats start as jokes before he's somehow finding himself engulfed in the process of owning the impossible. A 2016 SLS Street League pro pick and Thrasher "King of the Road" repeat offender, Kyle's up for any challenge and charging towards anything he wants to destroy.
