Watch: Wade Goodall and Co. Show You Just How Good Those Vans Booties Work
Allow Part 4 of the Pentacoastal B-Sides to serve as your official proof of concept.
Listen, I know.
I know we posted an article literally yesterday highlighting the short history and immediate success of Vans’ bootie program under head designer Matt Nosbusch. I know you may think the Stab staff have sold our individual souls to Vans and that we’ve all agreed to be buried under their HQ in checkerboard coffins.
I also know that I would be remiss if I didn’t make this piece explicitly about the clear and undeniable quality that this product carries and the improvements it can bring to your surfing.
The booties are seen throughout the original film but are featured in easily 3/4 of the above clips. While I personally know absolutely nothing about the contracts of the Vans’ Surf team, I do know Wade Goodall and Nate Fletcher have been in this game far too long to use products that don’t work (Fletcher has literally been on the team for 22 years, I don’t think his wearing these or not would be a deal-breaker in their life-long partnership.) If you’re still not intrigued, please allow the clip at 3:09 to change your mind.
And if you haven't watched the film by now, save what's left of your dignity and click here.
