Anthony Van Engelen and Vans Skateboarding live by an ethos of “Always Pushing”—working to reimagine, redefine, and continuously expand the boundaries of what’s possible in skateboarding. Back in March, they launched Vans most advanced skateboarding shoe ever, the AVE 2.0.

To celebrate the latest AVE 2.0 iteration, Vans Skateboarding hosted the final chapter of its “Commitment to Progression” global gallery tour during Paris Fashion Week at the iconic Place De La Bastille following previous stops in LA, Shanghai, and Seoul. The moment hosted the local Paris community with a cash-for-tricks skate session, which saw the next generation of Parisian Skateboarders push the boundaries in the same way that AVE does.

Vans Global Ambassador Steve Van Doren, the Cosanostra skate community, Curren Caples, Nelly Morville, Etienne Gagne, Willow Voges Fernandes, Tania Cruz, Hugo Westrelin, Diego Todd, Rio Morishige, Mami Tezuka, Helena Long, Victor Pellegrin, Daiki Hoshino, Elijah Berle, Rowan Zorilla, and others attended the event.
