The most iconic Vans footwear shoe of all time is now available as a pro model shoe, loaded with the latest footwear technology. The Vans Skate Old Skool Shoes are more durable with Vans DURACAP™ underlay, which in layman’s terms are rubber layers that sit under the outer fabric of the shoe, so when you wear through the shell of the shoe, there is an extra layer of protection, making the shoe last much longer. You may be familiar with Vans famous Waffle sole, which is now even more grippy with Vans SICKSTICK™ rubber compound. SickStick also has greater wear capabilities and is only found in their Pro Skate Shoe models. Also featured in Vans Skate shoe models is an internal heel shank, a supportive structure between the insole and outsole, providing stability, support and durability.
All of these functions make for a more durable Vans shoe, but what about comfort? That’s where Vans POPCUSH™ sock liners come into play. PopCush are Van’s insoles designed using an advanced foam formula, increasing comfort, but also impact protection, so when your heel meets the ground, you’re protected. The PopCush insoles are also designed to maximise the ‘feel’ of your pedals or board, providing superior cushioning and impact protection. The new Vans Skate Classics Old Skool gives you the iconic look you’re after - with all of the best comfort and performance benefits.
