Dennis married the reliability and strength of the Slip-On BMX with an elevated look and feel, bridging performance and functionality with style. His slip-on comes to life in a synthetic distressed leather upper in rich pewter that features his debossed custom artwork on the heel—a graphic inspired by one of his tattoos. The shoe is rounded out with black foxing and Dennis’ motto, “Peace, Love, Positivity,” on the sockliner, which also carries over into a broader Vans x Dennis Enarson apparel offering.
“Peace, love, positivity is an affirmation I always have in my head whenever things get stressful or tough,” Dennis added. “Those words always remind me of what life is all about.”
The Standard Versa Hoodie in gray is a 290gm water-repellent fleece pullover with left chest and back detailing featuring Dennis’ custom mandala artwork, peace sign and motto. In addition, the Dennis Enarson Off The Wall Tee in black features retro graphics, peace sign and “Vans Original Since 1966” messaging.
One of the most versatile BMX athletes in the world, Dennis Enarson is widely considered as the best all-around rider of the decade and the most impressive for his range. Boasting X Games medals in three different disciplines and more NORA Cups than he has shelf space for, the San Diego, California-based rider is just as at home putting out a game-changing all-street video part as he is on the podium of a trick-heavy BMX contest. Off the bike, Dennis has founded his own brand, organized events and produced his own podcast. He embodies the personal motto of “Peace, Love, Positivity,” bringing that message to the BMX community in each of his pursuits.
