Spitfire x Vans ‘Keeping the Underground Lit’

May 8, 2010 at 22:27 Leave a comment

This project was a no-brainer. Vans and Spitfire share a lot of mutual respect, both have a passion for skateboarding, and don’t hesitate to give back. The goal of this project was to ensure that both contributed to skateboarding in a real way – not just make a co-branded product together.

The initial meeting focused on that contribution – how they would support skaters, shops, and the skate scene itself. “Keeping the Underground Lit” was the headline, something that both brands believe in. Cardiel and Van Engelen will work with the Spitfire crew to design and build two new street spots, one in Sacto and one in LA. The product capsule will support the effort, and includes footwear and apparel that is clean and timeless, tied together with the collab logo and a basic color palette.

Cardiel hooks up the Era Pro, Van Engelen colors up the AV6, and they added a Chukka Low for the team to finish it off. The apparel and accessories are all classic pieces that will work well.
