BORN FREE 8 / SILVERARDO, CALIFORNIA
Posted: Jun 27 2016
This year we took part in the eighth annual Born Free Motorcycle Show where motorcycle builders and enthusiasts as well as scene spectators come together to talk iron over an open field in Oak Ranch in Silverado. It was nice to see fans road trip several hours to make it to the event on our behalf as well to purchase their pair of Blends x Born Free x Vans Vault OG Old Skool LX shoes. But obviously we were small fish compared to what the vast majority came out for. A fan flew out from Canada and won a $20,000 bike with a luck of a raffle which only cost him $25 to join in, with many others like him winning bikes of similar caliber for only $25 buy-in.
The sun was brutal, but luckily Born Free came prepared with various mystifiers located throughout the ranch as well as shaded areas where spectators could cool down. If you missed out on this year's Born Free Show, there's always next summer!
Thanks again to Born Free for the opportunity as well as Vans Vault for allowing this three-way collaboration come to fruition as well as the die-hard Blends fans out there who continue to support us through the years!
