Vans x Gorilla Biscuits Schuh Kooperation

Posted 02/27/2011 by Vans

Wir haben nochmal ein super Gewinnspiel zu den Gorilla Biscuits X Vans Schuhen mit den Kollegen von online gebracht. Wer also Schuhe gewinnen will, ab die Post:


Viele von uns kennen doch noch die Straight Edge Zeit in den Neunzigern, wo viele Emo Konzerte mit richtigen Metal und sogar Death Metal in kleinen Dorfspilunken statt gefunden hat. Und Ende der 80er waren doch die Gorilla Biscuits die Band dieser Bewegung! Als Honorierung an diese tolle Zeit haben wir jetzt einen schicken veganen Slip-On und einen Sk8 Hi gemacht. Die Farben sollen nach Sänger CIV Tattoowierfarben kennzeichnen... ihr könnt hier noch mehr lesen...

Gorilla Biscuits

While the Gorilla Biscuits disbanded after just one full length album and an LP, the band’s mark on hardcore through their more melodic upbeat rhythms is unquestioned.  Formed in New York in the late 80s, Gorilla Biscuits cut their teeth in hardcore clubs around Manhattan before quickly gaining enough notoriety from hits such as “Better than You” to tour the United States and Europe.  Gorilla Biscuits short initial presence has been followed up by several reunions in more recent years including a couple of big benefit shows at the seminal New York club CBGB.

Vans and Gorilla Biscuits have created this special Sk8-Hi (RRP €85) and Classic Slip-On (RRP €70) pairing working closely with lead singer CIV who pushed us to utilize the traditional tattoo ink tones in the shoes.  Each shoe is emblazoned with the group’s GB and the Gorilla Head insignia. 

Says CIV: “While deciding on colors and fabrics for the Gorilla Biscuits Vans, I took into consideration what would represent the band, as well as myself. The sneakers would have to be something wearable for everyone, not just a skater kid in a mall.  Marrying both the New York hardcore pedigree that the band enjoys and my long time profession as a tattooer, I decided on a blue collar aesthetic with work wear colors along with some of my favorite tattoo pigment hues. Being a long time vegetarian made the choice to do both models vegan an easy one.”
