Hailing from the southeastern tip of Rhode Island, Pilgrim Surf + Supply was founded by Mr. Chris Gentile, a purist with a passion for marrying surf-inspired style with a streetwear aesthetic. His goal for the Brooklyn-based label was to create a social hub where the community could discover new things, share their ideas, and interact with the culture that had shaped his life. Embodying these ideals, the Vans x Pilgrim Surf + Supply Authentic SF combines our original low profile silhouette with the Vans Surf SF build to create an upgraded, comfortable lace-up style with a collapsible heel. The Pilgrim Authentic SF also features organic cotton canvas uppers, molded UltraCush sockliners for upgraded cushioning, Vulc Lite construction, and classic rubber waffle outsoles with single-wrap foxing tape for lightweight comfort. It is made with water-based inks and glues.
Vans’ standard ULTRACUSH flat sheet sockliner has light, predictable cushioning and foothold for dependable comfort.
