Some kicks Stab digs
We at Stab ain’t skaters. Sure, we dig a roll around as much as the next trying-to-pass-a-flat-spell man, but that’s about as far as it goes.

We at Stab ain’t skaters. Sure, we dig a roll around as much as the next trying-to-pass-a-flat-spell man, but that’s about as far as it goes. We do, howevs, enjoy the rich history of skate culture and the undeniable crossovers that history shares, at times, with surfing. The one brand that’s bridged this gap better than any other is Vans. And it’s for this reason that we find ourselves vibing on a classic from the company – the Geoff Rowley Pro.
As you might’ve guessed, they’re the British skater’s signature model. He designed them in 1999, his first-ever pro shoe, and in doing so dragged Vans’ classic look to a whole generation of skaters. So while they look like Old Skools, they’re a little more padded out, which is a nice change in this era of plimsols, canvas kicks and Chuck Taylors. The black and white with a hint of red is something you just can’t go wrong with. It ain’t a surprise that, while they went outta production for a time, the Rowleys are back in 2013 and as relevant as ever. They’re solid for anything you can throw them into. So, what y’got for them?
Killcom, Stab‘s new favourite online portal for scooping kicks, is now shipping these gems. If you wanna keep those hoofs vibrant this season, we suggest you pounce over here.
