Malaysian skateboarder Pa’din Musa shocked fans everywhere when he announced his collaboration with Vans. With the release, he is now the first Malaysian ever to collaborate with the renowned sports footwear, apparel and accessories brand to create a signature shoe colourway.
These kicks are Pa’din’s personal favourites and will be part of the Vans Pro Skate Classic footwear model series – one in Old School Pro and the other, Authentic Pro.
Not only a professional skateboarder, Pa’din also has a huge passion for bikes. He chose the black and citrus shades for his kicks, which is inspired by his favourite vintage racing jersey. According to Vans, the colour and pattern imprinted on the sidewall of the shoe are the exact tire patterns that Pa’din has on his wheels. What makes the shoe more special is the handwritten notes on the insoles of the shoes by his sons, Fahim and Fayadh.
Pa’din will also be releasing a documentary directed by Mark Khor and titled “Demi; A Pa’din Musa documentary”. Fans will be able to watch the full video on 27 November via the Vans YouTube channel. It’s truly inspiring to see the accomplishments of Pa’din Musa, as he unlocks another milestone in his career as an Asian skateboarder.
The sneakers will be available in all Vans stores nationwide from 2 December onwards. For more information, visit the official website.
