Skate: Vans Canada x Leeside Collabo
Vans Canada and the Vancouver skatepark, Leeside, just did a collabo shoe and build project. The Era 46 Pro is one of the two DIY shoes made by Vans in support of do-it-yourself skateparks. It was made to support the park created by Lee Matasi, a well-known skater and artist in Vancouver who had built the park himself, but was fatally shot in 2005. Leeside was able to raise over $16,000 from purchases of the shoe.
