The Vans Half Cab silhouette was first unveiled in 1992, making 2022 the 30-year anniversary of the Half Cab! Paying tribute to a shoe that defined a generation, the Half Cab has been redesigned with performance in mind, loaded with features delivering more grip, more comfort, more support, and more durability.
A heritage skate style upgraded for enhanced performance, Steve Caballero’s signature Vans Skate Half Cab Pro Shoes have been redesigned to deliver more of what you need to enable maximum progression. Made with a fully revised upper, molded heel counter, locked-in tongue straps, and a recut of the DURACAP™ underlay, the Half Cab offers an essential fit that is more breathable and durable where you need it most. The two-part foxing, featuring a tougher toe knurl, ensures heightened board contact, and the redesigned gum rubber sole that made Vans famous has been further elevated with the SICKSTICK™ rubber compound plus an internal heel shank to deliver more grip, more feel, more support, and more durability. Along with a new sidewall finish, POPCUSH™ sockliners for superior cushioning and impact protection, and Steve’s classic branding label, the new Half Cab gives you the iconic look you want—with all the performance benefits that you demand. It is made with sturdy suede and canvas uppers.
