After turning pro in 1989, Barbee became one of the first freestyle flat ground skateboarders and has spent decades capturing photoshoots. To celebrate this, Vault by Vans and Barbee have brought several footwear silhouettes, apparel lines and accessories to the market for sale via the Vault by Vans store.
