It takes an “Off The Wall” mindset and a lot of confidence to pull off the tricks that make Dan Lacey one of the most respected riders in BMX, but it also takes the proper support. The Dan Lacey Slip-On BMX is equipped with Vans trusted Wafflecup™ BMX construction to deliver maximum support, with a focus on increased pedalfeel and durability. A best-in-class PopCush™ drop-in footbed snaps back and won’t pack, offering a full heel cradle and increased arch support. DURACAP™ provides reinforced underlays in high-wear areas to prolong the life of the shoe.
Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is proud to partner with one of the most established street riders in BMX, Dan Lacey, on the Slip-On BMX, influenced by his unrelenting, all-or-nothing approach and his lifelong experiences calling the UK home.
Residing in Hastings, UK, Dan has a distinguished and refined style that is both heavy and progressive, honed from growing up immersed in a strong BMX scene and a commitment to perfection—all of which makes his execution of the biggest tricks look effortless. For Dan’s take on the Slip-On BMX, Vans designed a shoe that matches his riding, with next level pedalfeel, support and durability. Style is everything when it comes to Dan’s approach, which is reflected in a muted color palette and an elevated two-tone suede upper with meaningful detailing.
Dan’s signature Slip-On features a timeless design in asphalt and pewter, with a crown emblem
It’s been a decade since Vans and CULT linked up for the first time, and in celebration of all the clips, collaborations, road trips, riding, sneakers and shirts since then, the two have come together for a sixth collection that’s dubbed “Never Fade” and centered around new takes on the Old Skool BMX and Slip-On BMX, both equipped with Vans’ Wafflecup BMX construction. The Old Skool BMX supplies a monochromatic upper constructed of sturdy black suede and embellished with a special branded tongue tag. The Slip-On BMX features tonal, patterned CULT iconography and a two-tone build that uses both black suede and light canvas. Text graphics appear on the midsole of the Old Skool BMX and the insoles of the Slip-On BMX, the latter of which also repurposes the aforementioned CULT pattern for even more detail. Both round their look off with debossed CULT branding on the heel.

His innovative approach to both park and street riding had him stacking up medals, including three X Games Park wins, and a part for Vans’ Illustrated was a testament to his trick progression and versatility.
