Vans Skate Sk8-Hi - Grosso 84 Black / Red Check

Special edition Jeff Grosso (RIP) Vans Sk8-Hi! Gone but never forgotten.

Vans family member and skate legend Jeff Grosso’s impact on skateboarding is without rival. His genuine love for skateboarding was felt by everyone who had the chance to talk skate with him, and his support for the community —especially the up-and-coming generations—came from a true belief that skateboarding belonged to the kids. There was nothing Jeff wouldn’t do to uplift skateboarding and the people in it.

Jeff gained notoriety in the 1980’s within the competitive scene and quickly became one of the most recognizable faces in skateboarding with the onset of skate videos that highlighted his skill along with his sardonic wit and audacious spirit, entertaining the masses with his self-deprecating humor and antagonistic spirt. In the span of his influence on the sport, however, Jeff became the unofficial skate historian, helping create ten years of Vans’ Love letters to Skateboarding with his unique and raw commentary on the industry, which will serve as the encyclopedia of everything skateboarding holds dear for years to come.

To honour Jeff’s legacy, Vans unveils a new iconic style: The Skate Sk8-Hi Reissue with royalties directed to Jeff’s son Oliver.
