The Vans X Fit Bike X Robbie Morales shoe collaboration was a long time in the making. Robbie has been a huge supporter and ambasador to the Vans brand both as a BMX rider as well as an owner of the well respected FIT BIKE CO. BMX brand. The shoe that we chose to collaborate on is called the Metcalfe in a black and red color theme.
Friday, November 30 marked the end of what will forever be remembered as the longest and most courageous battle between one man, a man we all know as the world's greatest daredevil, and death. Robert Craig "Evel" Knievel died in Clearwater, Florida, finally succumbing after nearly a three-year bout with the terminal lung disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. He was 69. His death was preceded by more than 40 years of constant battle against the persistent pain of broken bones and severe trauma after jumping and crashing motorcycles like no man had ever done before.

This year was a real busy one at Paul's Boutique BMX shop so it was hard to plan a weekend to go on tour with the team. Very late in the year we can't ride outside so we did an " Indoor tour" in Holland and Germany. Our "FACTORY TEAM" has 4 people:
Pim van den Bos, Dennis Keunen, Riccardo Moes and Michael van der Lee and we had Vladdie de Koning from our "NBR TEAM" to go with us this time, and a mistery guest called BH.
Old school BMX lovers will like this one. If the girls are not to their liking, at least it's got the all green Skyway Street Beat bike. Let's make this a 18+ FATBMX pin-up. To be considered old school you have to be over 18 anyway......Thanks to JT.
