Sydney-based skate brand Pass~Port has been cultivating a community of local skaters and creatives since 2009, growing to become one of Australia’s most recognized skate exports. And with its global following taking flight, Vans has tapped the Aussie label for a limited edition collaboration, unveiling the Vans x Pass~Port Sid Pro and Vans x Pass~Port Bomber.

Inspired by a local spot named “Fitzy Plaza” — in Edinsburgh Gardens, North Fitzroy — the Vans x Pass~Port Sid Pro is embossed with an allover brick pattern in red and green colorways, reflecting the red bricks of the community building and its surrounding green fields. Embroidered at the lateral sides is the retro Vans logo complemented by Pass~Port’s logo on the medial side. The heel is accented with the words “Pass” and “Port” while a custom tongue patch features an illustration of the “digger man” motif, a recurring graphic for Pass~Port. The shoe also includes UltraCush HD sockliners for added cushioning and each pair comes with a bonus Souvenir Vans x Pass~Port keychain.

The digger man is also seen on the Vans x Pass~Port Bomber, emblazoned across the back below the collaborative Vans x Pass~Port logo. At the front are embroidered Vans and Pass~Port logos woven over two sides of the chest. The jacket bears a slight sheen from its satin fabric contrasted by white brick quilt stitching — filled with lightweight poly — found on the inside. Other details include the Vans x Pass~Port enamel pin at sleeve pocket and a “pen” pocket near the left shoulder.
