Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is excited to unveil the Slip-On BMX by Dennis Enarson, a finely tuned offering that is just as versatile as the rider himself.
Dennis’ diverse style demands a shoe that can do it all. Together with Vans, he applied his aesthetic to the Slip-On BMX, created specifically with BMXers in mind. The Slip-On BMX features Vans’ hybrid cupsole and vulcanized Wafflecup BMX technology, which provides unrivaled support and durability without compromising precious pedalfeel.
“From the beginning, I knew this shoe had to be something durable to shred in, yet fashionable enough to wear with your favorite outfit—and that’s exactly what we made,” Dennis said.
“Dennis married the reliability and strength of the Slip-On BMX with an elevated look and feel, bridging performance and functionality with style. His slip-on comes to life in a synthetic distressed leather upper in rich pewter that features his debossed custom artwork on the heel—a graphic inspired by one of his tattoos. The shoe is rounded out with black foxing and Dennis’ motto, “Peace, Love, Positivity,” on the sockliner, which also carries over into a broader Vans x Dennis Enarson apparel offering.
“Peace, love, positivity is an affirmation I always have in my head whenever things get stressful or tough,” Dennis added. “Those words always remind me of what life is all about.”
The Standard Versa Hoodie in gray is a 290gm water-repellent fleece pullover with left chest and back detailing featuring Dennis’ custom mandala artwork, peace sign and motto. In addition, the Dennis Enarson Off The Wall Tee in black features retro graphics, peace sign and “Vans Original Since 1966” messaging.”
Another first of its kind, built with BMX in mind.
In some ways, riders like Dennis Enarson are a dying breed. You have street riders and transition riders, trick riders and flow riders, burly riders and technical riders. Very rarely does a single rider encompass all of those things, but thats Dennis. Hes the only rider in history to be nominated for four NORA Cups in the same year-Street, Dirt, Ramp, and Video Part-and off the bike, hes just as busy. Hes started his own brand, produced a full-length video, organized events, and produced his own podcast. Plus, hes a damn nice guy. The best all-around rider in the world also happens to be driven to create good things for the community and BMX.
This season, Dennis has teamed up with Vans for a custom colorway in the new BMX Slip-On. Dennis wanted the support, durability and pedalfeel that the WAFFLECUP BMX construction provides with premium materials to offer an elevated look and feel. Along with DURACAP upper reinforcement, tonal debossed art on the heel, and peace, love, positivity printed on the sockliner, the Dennis Enarson BMX Slip-On offers maximum performance benefits with Denniss timeless style.
