Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is proud to partner with triple-threat BMX team rider Dennis Enarson to put his spin on the Old Skool Pro BMX, featuring first-of-its-kind WAFFLECUP BMX construction that’s been designed, tested and approved by today’s top riders. Representing Dennis’ renowned abilities, refined aesthetic and focus on mental clarity when riding, the Enarson Old Skool Pro BMX leans on an earthy olive/gum colorway, and is debossed with a hand-drawn mandala based on one of Dennis’ tattoos, which was created by longtime friend, fellow rider and tattoo artist, Thomas Hooper.
“His tattoos always mean a lot to me and it’s nice to put some of his work on the shoe,”Enarson comments. “These are strong shoes that are hard to mess up, and I dig them more and more as they age, which I don’t think I’ve ever said about any shoe in my life —especially with how hard I can be on them. The colors and materials make this the perfect shoe for shredding, camping, or just stompin’ around.”
Specifically created with the BMXer in mind, WAFFLECUP BMX provides unrivaled support and durability without sacrificing precious pedalfeel. A herringbone underlayer adds a second life beneath Vans’ classic gum rubber compound that has a more rigid flex pattern – all reinforced like a tank.

2021 bikes came in. Is it always a treat for you to put together a new bike? Niek Kimmann: For sure! I rode for over a year with the exact same bike, which is pretty long for an elite I guess, but it still felt good and still felt pretty stiff. But it’s always nice to get a new bike obviously!

The world of BMX Dirt has many characters, but none bigger than Cory "Nasty" Nastazio. Since the mid 1990s, Cory has been riding progressive dirt competitions, bringing some of the world's biggest backflips with style to the front of the pack. And what's better is, he's still going.
Felix Prangenberg kept himself busy whilst he recovered from a broken hand by building up a fresh bike based around his signature Wethepeople PATHFINDER frame, bar and sprocket along with a full eclat kit to finish it off.
