Vans Launches Black Ball Surf Footwear Collection with Positive Vibe Warriors

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 20 July, 2016 - In partnership with non-profit foundation Positive Vibe Warriors, Vans releases new designs of the Black Ball, a beach-friendly, low-top footwear style inspired by the ocean’s infinite source of creativity, joy and learning.
With design influence captured by Vans Surf team riders, the Gudauskas brothers, Vans highlights the new Black Ball collection for men and women to celebrate their growing non-profit foundation, Positive Vibe Warriors, and its commitment to spreading ocean awareness and water safety education.

Together, Vans and Positive Vibe Warriors help raise funds to educate global communities on the positive impact of oceanic environments by hosting local surfing events, swim lessons, nature programs, lifeguard workshops and many more ocean-friendly activities.
The new Black Ball styles take on a cool color palette, reflecting the blue hues of the oceans and tidepools discovered around the world everyday. With comfort in mind, the Vans Black Ball features a lightweight UltraCush sockliner for enhanced breathability combined with a slim, tailored form for an all-day relaxed fit.
The Positive Vibe Warriors-inspired Black Ball for men and women is available now.
