“It’s you, your skateboard, and the world. So go out and make it your own.” – Jeff Grosso Beloved Vans family member and skate legend Jeff Grosso’s impact on skateboarding is without rival. His genuine love for skateboarding was felt by everyone who had the chance to talk skate with him, and his support for the community—especially the up-and-coming generations—came from a true belief that skateboarding belonged to the kids. There was nothing Jeff wouldn’t do to uplift skateboarding and the people in it. To honor Jeff’s legacy, and ensure that future skaters understand the important role he played in shaping skateboarding’s history, Vans has unveiled a new iconic style: the Skate Grosso Mid. It’s got everything you need to up your game: repositioned DURACAP™ reinforcement, POPCUSH™ energy return sockliners, and the SICKSTICK™ rubber compound, plus a heritage design for an classic look. So get out there and make Jeff proud. • INCREASED DURABILITY - DURACAP™ reinforced materials, deeper knurl texture on the toe bumpers, and higher sidewall heights provide a more heritage look with increased durability and protection. • FULLY REDESIGNED UPPERS - Reconstructed with a molded heel counter and internal tongue straps for a locked-in fit and more board control. • LEGENDARY GRIP - Vans' new, proprietary SickStickTM gum rubber compound is vans' stickiest rubber yet. • POPCUSH CUSHIONING - Vans' best cushioning and impact protection. POPCUSH™ energy return footbeds protect your feet while helping to lessen leg fatigue for longer skate sessions. • ICONIC STYLING - A mix of suede and 10 oz canvas has been used at the upper, maintaining a classic heritage aesthetic in a silhouette inspired by the legendary Jeff Grosso.
