VANS REISSUES SALMAN AGAH'S FIRST PRO MODEL
Vans Reissues Salman Agah’s First Pro Model in Honour of Vans’ 50th Anniversary
The Definitive Rubber Toe Cap Returns
Commemorating 50 years of “Off The Wall”, Vans upholds its revered skate heritage with the reissue of Salman Agah’s first pro model shoe. The distinctive and highly anticipated Salman Agah Reissue Pro hits shelves around the world November 19.
Originally launched in 1994, Salman Agah’s memorable shoe marks Vans’ final Pro Skate reissue in honour of the brand’s historic 50th Anniversary. Built with Vans’ proven ULTRACUSH HD sockliners for resilient cushioning and advanced comfort, the Salman Agah Reissue Pro combines Vans’ original waffle outsole with DURACAP reinforced underlays for premium durability. The legendary silhouette features contrast stitching across suede uppers, the original woven elephant tongue label, and the shoe’s defining rubber toe cap, deeply cherished by skateboarders today.
Agah recollects, “the purpose of the original design was to speak to the future of skateboarding by producing a definitive skateboarding shoe, not to be mistaken for a shoe made for traditional sports.”
Famed the “Sultan of Switch” and selected as Thrasher Magazine’s 1993 Skater of the Year, Salman Agah spent 14 years on the Vans pro skate team and released a total of five signature Vans pro models. Agah is praised for his powerful and legendary skateboard style, reflecting the characteristics of the infamous elephant logo found on his introductory pro model.
The limited edition Salman Agah Reissue Pro launches at select stockists in Europe this Saturday, November 19.
