20 years, 20 iconic skaters, & 20 images along with the one and only half cab. The perfect formula for the opening of the Vans Syndicate “Twenty” exhibit being featured at the New Image Art gallery in Hollywood, CA. With a mashup of the most iconic skate legends from Stevie Williams to Mr. Caballero, this classic displays a collection of the history of the Half Cab through the legends that made them what they are today. The exhibit was put together by skater and photographer Lance Dawes. It commemorates the life and times of the classic pair of shoes that we know as the Half Cabs.
Vans covers the grid with the likes of skate icons such as Christian Hosoi, Jason Dill, and Chad Muska with the amazing photography of Mike O’Meally and Ben Colen that captures the essence of the Half Cab through the years and changes. The Half Cab has been here for twenty years, make that twenty years in counting. This shoe has paved the way for the competition to blunder from, and has influenced the skate scene for years to come.
