Vans proudly presents the third episode of Cut Down: 30 Years Of The Half Cab celebrating the influence and resiliency of the most iconic skate shoe of all time. (Check the Pedro Barros’ clips around minute 5. Sickness…)
Vans worked with acclaimed documentary filmmaker Patrick O’Dell to produce the series, which takes viewers on a journey from the Half Cab’s scissors-and-duct-tape beginnings through the height of vert and street skating, while highlighting the silhouette’s influence on today’s generation of skateboarders.
The Half Cab, and the free-spirited vibes it represents, belongs to the kids; to the future generations and to the innovators that continue to push what’s possible on a board. In Episode 3, we see skate legends and the next generation of rising talent talk about the influence of the Half Cab on skating’s legacy and the shoe’s continued influence, illustrated by skateboarding from the likes of Una Farrar, Daiki Hoshino, Pedro Delfino and Nick Michel, among others from across the globe.
Skaters across time zones and generations have been drawn to the Half Cab, a testament that speaks to the shoe’s iconic design and functionality. The silhouette has been foundational in skateboarding and the evolution of its culture through the years.
