Growing up in the South African surf scene Michael February’s style is the result of harmoniously blending the world around him into one beautiful rhythm and his collection is no exception. African artwork poly-rhythmic music cultural icons of past and present—they all have a role to play in the melody that is Mikey’s unique take on surf. Featuring a classic silhouette with timeless surf influence the Michael February Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF is made with sturdy textile and suede uppers. It also includes rubber toe caps molded UltraCush sockliners for upgraded cushioning Vulc Lite construction and classic rubber waffle outsoles.
"For the artwork and design of my collection I drew inspiration from a lot of things to do with Africa; African textiles and traditional tribal patterns as well as barber shop artwork. Just a whole African vibe." – Michael February
"It’s important to collaborate in this way as Vans has so many rad diverse riders everyone is different. For me doing this project with Vans I felt like I learned a lot but also got to express myself and show my side of things." – Michael February
