Over a half decade as part of the Vans Snow crew, Parker’s raw energy and fearless style have made him beloved among his direct Vans snow peers and the wider snowboarding community. If you want to hit a gnarly rail or set out on a wild backcountry expedition, he’s the guy that’s guaranteed to say, “f*ck it” and go with you. That mixture of versatility and vigor is on full display with his latest Vans Snow collection: on and off-mountain footwear in a sleek black and red color scheme, all accompanied by a new snowboarding film titled bless the ledge / secret tape.
Central to the Vans Snow x Parker Szumowski collection is the feature-rich Verse boot. This hybrid boot, equally at home in the terrain park as it is in the backcountry, boasts Vans Snow’s finest tech with an UltraCush™ liner that incorporates The North Face’s FlashDry™ technology, to a V3 Waffle Superenduro outsole with a cold weather rubber compound for maximum traction both inside and outside of your bindings, this boot is a rider’s dream. A BOA fit system even secures it to ensure you’ll never get caught lacking.
Besides the Verse boot, the collection also offers off-board boots, both classic and futuristic. The first is a Standard Zip Snow MTE boot with a thermal felt liner and waterproof construction, while the second is a fresh take on Vans Skateboarding’s Skate Bold for when you’re back in the streets. Each pair features Parker’s custom skull logo and punk-inspired red text graphics.
It’s not a Parker drop without a banger of a video part, too, so Vans Snow has produced bless the ledge / secret tapes. This delightfully chaotic film features Parker alongside Blake Paul, Jake Kuzyk, Mike Rav, Cannon Cummins, and others, doing everything from dropping hammers to learning how to drive a stick shift with Savannah Shinske.
The Vans Snowboarding x Parker Szumowski collection is available now via vans.com/snow and select Vans Snowboarding retailers.
