Much thanks to everyone who made it to the event last night. Press release via Vans and photos below.
Vans celebrated the release of its new Surfjitsu shoe last night with a special event at Vans by Thalia Surf Shop in Laguna Beach. More than 300 good friends came out for the party, which featured a selection of new artwork from Surfjitsu collaborators Neil Blender and Dane Gudauskas and a fun performance by Alejandro's Awesome Surf Band!
Hitting shelves this month, the slim, Slip-On styled Surfjitsu was inspired by traditional martial arts shoes and comes in a range of colors and materials including a blue corduroy shoe for Vans Surf team rider Dane Gudauskas and a special model for skate pioneer and artist Neil Blender.
Vans by Thalia Surf Shop, adjacent to Thalia's South Coast Highway store, melds Vans’ heritage with Thalia’s bohemian brand of beach culture in what is Vans’ first ever boutique surf partnership. The shop showcases a continuously evolving mix of Vans surf footwear and apparel including limited releases in shoes and signature Joel Tudor apparel. Vans by Thalia Surf Shop is located at 915 South Coast Highway in Laguna Beach, CA.
A special thanks to Primo for providing beverages!
