pillowHeat.com IS LIVE! ¬ new integrative website


what has been a long time coming is the exciting announcement of our website pillowHeat.com!

i would love to say 'new' website but essentially we have not had 1 until now. hopefully you find the website less convoluted & easier to traverse than this blog & disjointed combination of detached e-commerce & social media. the website will integrate blog, online shop & social links for a simplified passage through our vintage heat.

in addition, as you may or may not know we closed our original wilton way location late 2013 however have a new east london location (opening 06.14)! to be honest when we first opened for business in 2009 i didnt even know what a blog was.... & blogger was arguably already outdated by the time we began. selected blog posts will make the crossover to the website & because there remains a wealth of info herein this site will remain online, however as a dormant archive only

there will however be a short overlap period whereby products will still be available via our big cartel site. all new products will be uploaded & available via pillowHeat.com only & over time all products will make the crossover until the big cartel is redundant.

facebook appears to be dying, if not dead already, tumblr resembles now tumble weed & for the time being instagram is our driving force. follow us via @pillowHeat for product updates & for insight into rare archive items not for sale & general discussion about the history of the vans brand.

....OR THRASH?








vintage vans style #36 old skool
navy suede canvas
made in usa circa 1994
thrashed (cured right outsole)
US11/UK10-10.5

obviously thrashed, these were submit to a short-lived but intensive skate session. natural stance ollie blowouts to the left & significant rounding to the front bumpers. they remain sound structurally however with minimal footbed damage at the toe & fiber-fill loss in the tongue. the right gum waffle outsole has cured however. this is rare to see & the solidified rubber may be prone to cracking over time. the midsole is unaffected! priced accordingly in this rarest of size & model. wear at own risk!
