This season, Vans has collaborated with Della - a socially responsible and sustainable company based in LA. With a mission to support developing villages in Ghana in West Africa, Della specializes in producing hand crafted, one-of-a-kind textiles through employing more the 50 women in developing villages. Our Boston store has just received the Sk8-Hi Reissue and Era from the collaboration in an exclusive Batik print. Made from sustainable materials, the Sk8-Hi Reissue and Era are available in Batik/Black in women’s sizes. Available in store now at The Vans DQM General in Boston.
DQM and Vans celebrated the opening of The Vans DQM General in Boston, MA last Friday night at the newly opened location at 174 Newbury Street. Locals, family and friends celebrated with us while listening to professional skateboarder and musician, Ray Barbee, play a very special set. The Vans DQM General Boston is officially open! The store carries Vans’ most premiere selection of footwear in the city along with a fully set up skate shop, and of course the entire DQM apparel and accessories collection. Thanks to our family at Vans and everyone who came out!
The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is still very real for many in the New York City area who have lost nearly everything. Tonight, Vans is reaching out to anyone in the Long Beach area that still needs clothing or shoes. If you need these items, come by the fountain at City Hall between the hours of 6:30-8pm and pick up what you need. Items will be given out on a first come first serve basis. Long Beach City Hall is located at 1 West Chester St, Long Beach, NY.
***UPDATE*** This event has been postponed until Saturday, December 1st, 1-3pm due to inclement weather.
Our hearts go out to all of those suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Many areas of New York City and other regions of the East Coast need your help to rebuild and bounce back. This Thursday night, please come to East Coast Relief, an evening of musical performances to benefit the Red Cross at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. All proceeds from the event will go to helping those in need. We hope to see you there!
