The Vans family is more than happy to announce the latest additions to the VANS Europe team.

From now on Alex Valentino from France, Eduards Zunda from Latvia and Matt Priest from the UK will rock the waffle soles on a more international level.

They deliver hard, are great guys and it just feels natural stepping them up to the European team level. That gives them boys also more freedom to travel and be open for other Vans actions worldwide."
