Anthony Van Engelen, affectionately known by his fans as AVE, is a Californian professional skateboarder who has been sponsored by VANS for many years. As a proof of their strong relationship, the two parties joined forces by producing the AV78 apparel collection. The compact line reflects the hardcore attitude of Van Engelen, offering the garments in black and white monotone. Included in the collection is American-made raw stretch denim in indigo color, which should be durable enough to take a beating on a daily basis. These pieces are currently in stock at VANS DQM General and select VANS retailers nationwide.
