Shikumen by VANS

We love ourselves a good, global initiative, so 'Shikumen' by Vans fits right in line with that.

Vans Asia rented an old Shanghai lane house(See: Shikumen) and invited the Vans riders from all over the world to explore the city. Staying in week-long shifts, skaters from the USA, France, Malaysia, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, South Korea, and Japan cruised around with the Vans China team for a month.

Now the question is, why don't we see more of this kind of initiative from companies?

Featuring Chima Ferguson, Jesse Noonan, Jackson Pilz, Juwon Eun, Chris Bradley, Piet Guilfoyle, Azreen Azman, Dustin Henry, Etienne Gagne, Victor Pellegrin, Jeremy Hu, CK, Xiao Jun, Fifa Tintarn, Jerm Sothichai, Shogo Zama, Mario Palandeng, Zhenya Buzukin, Mike Lee, Justin Henry, and Pedro Delfino.
