In footwear, Vans' OG Authentic LX is updated in saturated pink and teal, while the Sk-8 Hi is rendered in an earthy brown. Lastly, the Slip-On arrives in baby blue.

All three models are embroidered with two phrases: the left reads "The joy is in capturing the journey,” while the right reads, in Leica's native German, " Ich entscheide hiermit: es wird riskiert," ("I hereby decide: the risk shall be taken").
"I like how the two quotes complement one another," Barbee tells Highsnobiety. "I'm very grateful for the opportunities that riding a skateboard has afforded me over the years. A lot of journeys and a lot of risks have enriched my experience."

As for Leica, Barbee expresses his preference for the line of cameras, specifically, their small size and the quality of their lenses.

"I learned early on that I needed a rangefinder camera for the way I wanted to catch fleeting moments. Leica makes the best rangefinder cameras on the planet," he says.
