Vans has just released two special version to its Pro series of footwear. Teaming up with legendary skater Ray Barbee, the drop sees new colorways for the Half Cab Pro, and the Old Skool Pro model. As a nod to Barbee’s prevalence in the ’90s skate scene, an early pro-board elephant graphic was used in the lining of the shoes to pay homage to Barbee’s long-time friend, Salman Agah.

Coming in burgundy and emerald, for the Old Skool Pro and Half Cab Pro, respectively, the pro-tested models encompass all the subtle skate technology that Vans has been working on for decades; features like the high-impact UltraCush HD sockliner, sticky waffle sole compound, and the Duracap-reinforced uppers. Those interested can head over to the Vans Pro Classics website for more info.

In other news, nonnative releases a signature take on Vans’ Old Skool Style 36 sneaker.
