Vans Snowboarding x Parker Szumowski
Vans Snowboarding collaborates with Parker Szumowski to bring explosive new collection to life
Parker’s more than half a decade on the Vans Snow crew, pure energy and fearless style have made him beloved by his own teammates and the broader snowboarding community. Whether you want to jump on an awesome rail or go on a wild backcountry expedition, he’s the guy who’s sure to say “who cares” and join the group.
This blend of versatility and vigor is fully represented by his latest Vans Snow collection: on and off-mountain footwear in a stylish black and red color scheme, all accompanied by the debut of a new snowboarding film entitled “bless the ledge / secret tape.”
The wonderfully chaotic video project features Parker along with Blake Paul, Jake Kuzyk, Mike Rav, Cannon Cummins, and others, doing literally everything from getting it on with tricks to learning how to ride stick shift with Savannah Shinske.
At the heart of the Vans Snow x Parker Szumowski collection is the feature-rich Verse boot. This hybrid boot, suitable for both terrain park and backcountry, boasts Vans Snow’s best technology: from the UltraCush liner that incorporates The North Face’s FlashDry technology to the V3 Waffle Superenduro outsole with a low-temperature rubber blend that provides maximum traction both with and without bindings. All of this, , never to be missed, secured by a Boa fit system.
In addition to the Verse boot, the collection also offers off-board silhouettes, both classic and futuristic. The first is a Standard Zip Snow MTE boot with thermal felt lining and waterproof construction, while the second is a reinterpretation of the Skate Bold from Vans Skateboarding designed for when you hit the streets. Each pair features Parker’s custom skull logo and red punk-inspired graphics.
