During his recent trip to NYC, Gilbert Crockett stopped by the House Of Vans BK to celebrate the release of his second pro model, the Crockett Pro 2.
After a sweaty session showcasing the shoe’s powerful abilities, we sat down with Gilbert to discuss his favorite childhood skate shoes, skateboarding’s continuous evolution, and his experience designing pro models.
Special thanks to Jordan & Neal at Vans for providing the initial sketches, and to everyone at HOV.
