Vans and A.skate team up to empower kids with autism.

Vans has collaborated with A.skate, a non-profit created to introduce kids with autism to the engaging and therapeutic effects of skateboarding, to deliver the Era Laceless Pro. The shoe features Vans Pro Skate performance upgrades plus the added benefit of an easy closure option. Custom “Obsessed to Skate” insole artwork by Jay Croft calls out autism’s obsessive tendencies and brings awareness to A.skate’s mission to channel that energy through skateboarding. “Autism, like skateboarding, can be unpredictable and oftentimes unruly,” says Crys Worley, founder of A.skate Foundation.
