Chima Ferguson's signature Vans shoe

Getting a pro board in 2013 was as simple as picking a name, paying the money to get the minimums made and selling them to your local shop. Getting a shoe with your name on it? Now that is a whole different ballgame. While most companies are now offering signature color ways, Vans decided to give one of Australia's finest, Chima Ferguson, his very own shoe. With his last part being in Real's 2011 video Since Day One, this shoe should be foreshadowing for his up-and-coming Vans video part. Ferguson's signature shoe is the first new signature shoe Vans has offered in more than five years.
