Vans and Canadian Pro Skateboarder Breana Geering Come Together on a New Collection of Elevated, Everyday Wear. A refined, wearable take on the Skate Old Skool and Skate Era
Hailing from British Columbia, Breana has emerged as an influential force in skateboarding, gaining recognition for her calm, collected style, serious ledge skills, and flip in and flip out manual tricks. Recently, Vans Skateboarding talked to Breana and those closest to her about how she came up in the Vancouver skate scene and what’s shaped her journey along the way. Building on the momentum of the past few years, Vans and Breana came together this season to create a forward approach to footwear and apparel, combining wearable colors with a nod to gender neutrality.
“I wanted it to be special and personal. I really made it my own by adding in some of my own little doodles to the back of the shoe and the insole. I really wanted to make a nice, simple shoe that people would be stoked to wear, to skate or to the bar.”
Breana Geering turned heads in 2018, winning first place in the Advanced category at Vancouver’s annual Stop, Drop and Roll women’s’ skate contest, and third place at the Montreal-based EMPIRE Am Getting Paid competition. That same year, she released her first solo parts in Thrasher’s Wisteria and Girl Skateboards’ Out For A Rip. In 2019, she made Thrasher’s Scramble list, a testament to her talent on the board, and followed that up recently with a full part in the 2020 all-female Vans Skateboarding film Credits. Her latest collection with Vans embodies her creative spirit and passionate drive to keep pushing skateboarding forward.
