When you task arguably the best all-around BMX riders in the world for their input on a shoe, you get Dennis Enarson‘s Vans Old Skool Pro BMX. According to Vans, the shoe was “Specifically created with the BMXer in mind, WAFFLECUP BMX provides unrivaled support and durability without sacrificing precious pedal feel.” Other features include PopCush insoles, which feature comfy heel cushioning that snaps back and doesn’t flatten out, and DURACAP reinforced underlays in high-wear areas to increase the longevity of the shoe. In short, this shoe was designed to withstand the rigors of Dennis Enarson’s level of riding. And they look great with an olive/gum colorway and debossed with a hand-drawn mandala for a finishing touch.
The Vans Old Skool Pro BMX Dennis Enarson and Enarson LS are available this month at Vans retailers and Vans.com/bmx.
Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is proud to partner with triple-threat BMX team rider Dennis Enarson to put his spin on the Old Skool Pro BMX, featuring first-of-its-kind WAFFLECUP BMX construction that’s been designed, tested and approved by today’s top riders.
Representing Dennis’ renowned abilities, refined aesthetic and focus on mental clarity when riding, the Enarson Old Skool Pro BMX leans on an earthy olive/gum colorway, and is debossed with a hand-drawn mandala based on one of Dennis’ tattoos, which was created by longtime friend, fellow rider and tattoo artist, Thomas Hooper.
“His tattoos always mean a lot to me and it’s nice to put some of his work on the shoe,” Enarson comments. “These are strong shoes that are hard to mess up, and I dig them more and more as they age, which I don’t think I’ve ever said about any shoe in my life —especially with how hard I can be on them. The colors and materials make this the perfect shoe for shredding, camping, or just stompin’ around.”
Specifically created with the BMXer in mind, WAFFLECUP BMX provides unrivaled support and durability without sacrificing precious pedal feel. A herringbone underlayer adds a second life beneath Vans’ classic gum rubber compound that has a more rigid flex pattern – all reinforced like a tank.
The Old Skool Pro BMX features additional best-in-class upgrades, like PopCush technology, which snaps back and won’t pack, as well as offers impact protection and custom energy return for any type of BMX riding. DURACAP reinforced underlays in high-wear areas add unrivaled durability to prolong the life of the shoe.
Supporting the Old Skool Pro BMX is the Enarson LS shirt in black, featuring the same hand-drawn mandala art as a large graphic on the back and minimal Vans logo on the front chest.
Known as one of the most versatile, multi-terrain BMX riders in the industry, Dennis Enarson has a long list of accolades, from a dozen earned medals and contest wins to multiple acclaimed video parts, including his recent short edit, Homestead, featuring a three-month world-class ramp build in his own backyard. His inimitable freestyle approach and positive attitude brings a new level of creativity and style to BMX, reflected in this latest collection.
