Vans Meet & Greet Gallery

Posted on

Anthony Van Engelen, John Cardiel, Christian Hosoi and Tony Alva

We were joined by this crew of Vans legends on Friday. They were in town for the House Of Vans park which just opened this Weekend and carved out some time to meet their fans at our Covent Garden store. We were stoked that they chose to visit us and were overwhelmed by the turnout. Enjoy this Vans Meet & Greet Gallery from the event…

An ever growing queue began taking shape outside the store in the afternoon

Thanks to everyone who showed up to this Meet & Greet and a big thank you to Vans for bringing everyone to visit us, it was a pleasure. Expect to see some interviews with these legends over the next few days and we will also be giving you the chance to win one of these signed House Of Vans boards. Be sure to visit their new space in Waterloo and stay tuned to hear what these guys had to say!
