Two of the world’s most iconic BMX brands have teamed up yet again to release the Vans x CULT collection, a head-to-toe offering of apparel and footwear that reflects storied histories, Southern California roots, and a shared roster of BMX riders, including freestyle powerhouse and 2021 Olympic hopeful Angie Marino. The collection leads with the Versa Hoodie in orange, featuring water-repellant STORM COTTON technology and printed CULT Checkerboard art down both sleeves. For Angie, the Versa is more than just another comfy staple in her collection of Vans x CULT collaborations: “I love that it has a Velcro pocket for your phone so when you’re riding or being active it won’t bounce out,” she said, adding that she always looks forward to what the two brands will create together.

Remaining a skateboarding shoe, household name and a fans favourite for over eight years, the Marana got even tougher with the reinvented Michelin outsole. The Marana features a fused on, injected rubber toe cap for incredible longevity and hidden lace loops to protect and withstand countless flicks. For added comfort and performance, the Marana includes a padded tongue, collar and Pro Foam 1 insole, all sitting atop of a cupsole formulated with Michelin rubber.
