New Vansguard® OG Old Skool LX

Vault-by-Vans_OG-Old-Skool-LX, Vansguard

At one point in my life I had some sweet perforated Maroon slip on Vans. The perforation was square (as opposed to round), quite larger than normal perf and ran the whole length of the top. This was all fine and good and allowed for nicely ventilated cool feets, but also allowed for wet ones as well when I got caught in the rain in them one day. Nobody likes a soggy foot.

What does that have to do with these shoes I’m posting here? Not much, other than these will repel water instead of invite it in.

Vault by Vans prepares for the wet weather of early spring by introducing Vansguard® with new colorways of the OG Old Skool LX. Available in Kelp, Red and True Blue hues, Vans’ original Sidestriped low-top is treated with Vansguard® to repel water, grime and moisture from its surfaces. Outdoor styling cues influence the assortment as tonal twill uppers, corduroy tongue panels and tartan plaid accents tie back to the classic Harrington jacket while braided rope laces and reverse waffle outsole traction reference the hiking boot aesthetic. The Vansguard® editions of the OG Old Skool LX arrive this February at select Vault by Vans retailers.

We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!

Up next, is mysterious/kick ass videographer and rider, Richard Forne.

What would you do today if it was your last day?

Ummm. Last day, I think if I wrote the true answer to this I would be arrested. I would art direct my funeral and make invitations, choose the sound track.

If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life what would it be?

Beach shorts, AA T shirt and speed socket polarized goggles.

Yesterday – Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner?

- Beetroot, carrot, apple and celery juice.
- Jachnun and mushroom Kibbeh.
- My girlfriend and I made salmon tarator with coriander and black garlic and BBQ’d grouper, which we left in goat yogurt and green curry through the day. She’s always making crazy dishes which inspire me to eat healthy.

Time for a “classic” – you’re stuck on a deserted island – 3 things you must have with you?

You know sometimes… that’s exactly how I feel. How long am I stuck there? 1 large agile camel, a water purification system and the spaceship from Flight of the Navigator.

If you were in an elevator and Michael Jordan walked in, what would you do?

Elevators are such weird places. Probably be wondering why he’s in the same elevator, say hi and ask what he’s doing in town.

What is your most prized possession?

Right now my juice machine and inhalers.

What is a weird, strange or funny story about something that happened to you?

My girlfriend and I were having breakfast on the balcony two days ago and a German Shepherd took a huge shit on the pavement and the truly disgusting irresponsible owner neglected his responsibility to pick it up and left it there steaming. Usually I like to chase these people with the shit to enlighten them, mainly on the beach but on this occasion I was too far away and it’s not a breakfast activity. We watched for about 15 minutes making the bet that someone was going to stand in it as there was a gym directly in front of it. Some incredibly close calls but no one stood in it but later that day we were walking back from the market and I felt a fast light slipping sensation beneath my flip flop… looked down and I had a dog shit all over my foot.

I wouldn’t say it was karma as I didn’t want anyone to stand in it but be assured the next person I see not picking their dog shit up will be wearing it.

Weird shit happens all the time, but yesterday I went to try and find this spot I’d seen a year ago and I got a bit lost, somehow rode into a smack den with some incredibly high and scarily unpredictable people wandering around. Literally just took a bad turn at high speed up an ally way and the other end was blocked. I turned around and was so shocked to see about 15 people injecting and holding needles up to the sun. Super scary situation.

If you could trade places for 1 week with someone, who would it be and why?

I think a female… perhaps Nina Simone. I think everyone wonders what it would be like to experience the opposite sex.

What would the title be of your autobiography?

Pursuit of Balance.

What was the last thing you built?

Juice machine.

What keeps you awake at night?

Howling cats.
Mating cats.
Fighting cats.

What was the last thing you bought?

Milk, eggs and bounties to make pancakes.

Are you guilty of answering a phone message with a text reply?

I hate everything about phones and phone companies. I always reply by email or skype as the cost of calls from here are mind blowing.

What has been an “ahh-ha!” moment in your life?

When I was lying on the floor with no air in my lungs at the bottom of a ledge with a fractured pelvis I realized… I could not manual.

Any pet peeves?

When I join a cue and I am the last person on the cue. I don’t mind being in the middle of a cue so long as there are people behind me but to arrive at the worst time in a cue is hell. It happens a lot to me and I usually have to walk away because I can’t bare it. People that don’t pick their dog shit up…

What was the last time you were star struck?

Last year when we were filming for Mutiny’s Cool Story Bro, Roey, Gaz and I decided to eat in this vegan place. I took a soup and went to sit outside. On the way out I held the door open for a man wearing a long jacket with his head low and a hat covering his face. As he passed by without saying anything I saw that it was Owen Wilson. For the next ten minutes I contemplated the idea of getting him and Roey to act a scene together for Roeys C.S.B film but Gaz had to calm me down.

Who are some people you enjoy following on Instagram?

I’ve never used instagram but I’d probably follow funny animal’s

Do you have a preferred method for preparing your coffee?

I usually don’t drink coffee but it’s pretty common in Israel to carry around a camping stove and coffee pot to prepare Kafe Botz ( MUD coffee ) and many people will invite you for one if you happen to be passing when it’s being prepared. It’s potent stuff.

What is the one thing you have to do / accomplish this year?

I think staying alive is top of my priority but I would love to swim from Tel Aviv to Yaffo.

How do you define happiness in life?

Sunrise, sunset.

Behind The Cover: Shawn Mcintosh Ride #198

198 Shawn Cover

The new issue of Ride BMX is out and features Shawn Mcintosh on the cover with a gnarly double peg. For a little more insight on this shoot, I hit up the one and only Jeff Z for a little behind the scenes info about this day.

Stew Johnson was in town along with Van Homan and Ben Lewis and filming for the next Fit DVD was in full swing. Since we were in LA, it was Shawn McIntosh’s time to shine and he was knocking out clips at a bunch of spots that he had been staring at for months. It was an intense few days of non-stop bangers. On the day Shawn did this ledge, his plan was to do another wild move about 45 minutes south of LA, and if that went well (which it did), then we’d drive up to LA and he’d wrap the day up with the Wilshire ledge.

I was lucky enough to be around the entire time Stew was in town and the grip of photos I got between Shawn, Benny, and Van was pretty nuts—enough to get the ball rolling for interviews with Ben and Shawn. By the time we got to the Wilshire ledge, I knew I had enough photos of Shawn for a full-length feature and this would’ve been the icing on the cake—a cover shot. So I did everything I could to get the best photo possible for a cover. I planned to shoot the photo with my Hasselblad at first, but after trying to compose it and have enough room for the proper cover crop, I knew it wouldn’t work because I didn’t have enough space behind me to move back and using a fisheye for a ledge that size would’ve been ridiculous. So I went with my digital body with a 24-70, pulled out on the wider side and I shot looser than I normally would to allow enough wiggle room for just the right cover crop.
