Vans EU 10th Annual Shop Riot Contest Photos
Recently, Vans EU held its tenth annual Shop Riot contest in the majestic, fashion famous city of Milan, Italy. The contest had all the right ingredients in place for an epic party: food vendors, amazing corse, shop crews and skateboarding’s favorite son, John Cardiel. Although there could only be one winning shop, every person in attendance felt the overwhelming good vibes with the local teams ripping together. Thanks, Vans! —Federico Casella
