Vans Pro Skate Tour 2016: Chicago 

To announce the new Chicago shop “Vans by Uprise”, Vans Footwear and Uprise Skateshop came together for a party complete with music by the legendary Ray Barbee, followed by a demo at Grant Park the next day. 

United Skateboarding was lucky enough to be in attendance to snap some exclusive photos from the demo.
