Founded in 2015, Hong Kong-based skate brand VICTORIA has built itself around the unique juxtaposition of the East and West cultures found in the city. The inspiration is expressed in a visual representation that incorporates traditional local elements and reinterprets them in novel contemporary ways.

Continuing its efforts of furthering the Asian creative landscape and skate community, VICTORIA has come together with Vans Skateboarding for a Skate Half Cab collaboration. The take on the iconic footwear silhouettes is marked by a celebration of the urban jungle of Hong Kong.

VICTORIA explored the high energy and precision footwork similarly needed for both shuttlecock and skateboarding. The VICTORIA x Vans Skate Half Cab features tonal black suede uppers accented by mid panels marked with illustrations of the dynamic root systems of banyan trees seen along the playgrounds of local shuttlecock players and skate spots in the city. Additional detailing comes in the form of contrasting orange eyelets, co-branded Half Cab labels, tongue tags, and heel license plates, specially printed insoles, and “VICTORIA” debossed at the heel panels. Elevating the uppers are black midsoles with matching foxing and bright orange rubber waffle outsoles.

The VICTORIA x Vans Skate Half Cab collaboration will be available via Vans Hong Kong and VICTORIA November 12.
