The thing about skate shoes is this: they're ephemeral. The shoes themselves go from box-fresh to powerline fodder in less than a month, and models seem to come and go just as quickly. So when a skate model hits its 20th birthday still going strong, that's something.

The Vans Half Cab turns 20 this year, and its namesake, original Bones Brigade member Steve Caballero is still going strong as well. The 47-year-old Cab was on the cover of The Skateboard Mag back in September skating his signature kicks, and he blessed Complex with an interview to discuss the birth of the midcut skate shoe as well as a very special Supreme collabo.
