This latest collaborative effort from Vans sees them teaming up with Empire BMX on their Ruark shoe. Designed by Adam Roye, these super simple and clean skate kicks actually work just as well for riding, even without the redesign. Featuring a waffle grip sole, the Vans BLC cupsole for increased flexibility, and double-stitched upper they've put together a shoe that should last through countless rides.
