Vans has announced the official debut of the Geoff Rowley Signature Collection, hitting shelves worldwide this fall. With Vans since 1999, pro skateboarder Geoff Rowley is influential in modern street skating for pioneering big technical tricks and a go-for-broke style, a true legend whose impact on the culture endures. Not surprisingly, Geoff demands the same qualities of style and durability from his gear.
Vans’ signature footwear and introductory apparel collection designed by Geoff Rowley launches globally beginning June 13, equipped with superior performance innovation in Vans’ DURACAP footwear reinforcements and STURDY STRETCH chino pants to combine legendary durability with timeless style.
Purpose-built for skateboarding in construction and design, Vans’ signature Geoff Rowley Collection reflects Geoff’s energetic lifestyle by infusing workwear and military-spec detailing to emphasize classic functional styling. Inspired by the original Vans Era, one of the first shoe models ever built by skateboarders for skateboarding, the all-new Vans [ROWLEY] SOLOS transform the legendary Vans silhouette to create a revolutionary model that performs even better, featuring Vans’ DURACAP reinforced natural canvas textiles and premium suede uppers with Vans’ ULTRACUSH HD high-impact polyurethane cushioning, all grounded on Vans’ ORIGINAL WAFFLE outsole. The [ROWLEY] SOLOS launch in-stores worldwide this Saturday, June 13.
Vans [ROWLEY] SOLOS are complimented by the forthcoming debut of Geoff’s first Vans apparel collection this July, which includes Vans’ STURDY STRETCH twill GR chinos, a cotton canvas GR workwear shirt and shirt jacket, a 6-panel cotton snapback cap with a woven GR patch applique and four GR tees armed with Vans Wicked Dry for reliable moisture-wicking comfort.

The Tony Hawk Foundation needs your help to “Make Concrete Change!” throughout June; THF is partnering with CrowdRise to celebrate International Go Skateboarding Day all month long by raising funds for communities building free, public skateparks. 100% of money raised though this campaign will directly fund skatepark projects across the U.S.
By helping out, you have a chance to win Tony’s signed skateboard deck, or two VIP Tickets to their exclusive Stand Up For Skateparks benefit taking place on October 11, 2015.
Starting is easy, just go to www.crowdrise.com/MakeConcreteChange and click the “Fundraise for this Campaign” button to get started. It should take 30 seconds.
Once you’ve established your fundraiser, make sure to update it with the story of why you support THF. The more personal and compelling your story, the more likely you are to get donations.
And please help us spread the word. E-mailing your co-workers, family, and friends directly about your fundraiser and the Make Concrete Change campaign will work 10 times as well as posting it on social media. Sharing it on social media can help raise awareness, but don’t rely on it to drive donations.
If you don’t have 30 seconds to spare, or for some reason can’t set up a fundraiser, please go to www.crowdrise.com/MakeConcreteChange and donate.
Help the Tony Hawk Foundation to reach its goal of $50,000 for skatepark projects across the U.S. 100% of funds received will help construct skateparks in communities that need them most.
If you have questions or need help, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Carly Whitton: firstname.lastname@example.org; or call 760-477-2479.
