Elijah Berle demands the best skate shoe in the world. So when Vans teamed up with him to create his first signature model, The Vans Berle Pro, they took cues from Elijah’s skating and set out to break the mold of what is possible. By combining to internal sockliner, built-in cushioning, and the gum rubber outsole, we developed the all new and first of its kind WaffleControl bottom unit. With less moving parts and less between your foot and the board, you will have more control and more boardfeel. Add that to our classic gum rubber compound for less slip and more grip and put it under a classic yet sleek designed upper and you have the best skate shoe ever made. The Vans Berle Pro featuring WaffleControl technology. Less. The New More.
