The opportunity to design a shoe that stands in a line amongst the namesakes of Anthony Van Engelen, Geoff Rowley and Steve Caballero is no easy feat. Sydney, Australia’s finest has achieved this though, with Chima Ferguson’s pro model being released by Vans earlier this year. Here we take a look at one of the finer colorways from the initial release of the shoe, finding the minimalist silhouette executed in a festive “Hawaiian” pattern. The predominantly blue reinforced canvas upper is detailed with a leaf-style pattern in a darker navy tone. Brown leather patches around the heel counter and on the tongue add a nice hint of contrast, which is maintained in the bronze metal eyelets. This attractive upper sits atop Vans’ Pro Vulc sole, which fuses polyurethane into its construction for maximum impact support. Packing cutting edge skate technology into an admittedly attractive package, look for the Chima Ferguson Pro “Hawaiian” at retailers such as Premier for $65 USD.
