The VANS PRO series is essentially an improved version of the classic Vans.  

The idea behind this project is to evoke a strong sense of identity with the shoe.
As the tagline on the shoe is "Giving skateboarding a bad name since 2000",
we decided to focus on creating an image of "bad", "skater" and "cool".
