Vans Profiles Tyson Peterson

It’s been a long, interesting ride (and rise) for Peterson

Tyson Peterson may be a pro for Baker, but he also recently put his own spin on a colorway of the Wayvee for Vans. How did Peterson get to this point? Vans figured they should learn more about the guy they just gave a shoe design over to. They put out what they are calling a short film that profiles Peterson and his rise. The skater has been on radars for a long time. He was a major skateboarding prodigy down in Florida when he was only 11. Of course, these days that would put him on the verge of Olympic glory. Back then, though, you couldn’t rely on something like that to pop. Peterson did it, though, with the help of friends, family, and his fellow skaters. Vans calls Peterson a “true trailblazer,” and we suggest you blaze into watching this video above.
