The new sidewall finish, checkerboard flag, and “Skateboarding” branding are some of the subtle differences that enhance the iconic style skaters need to enable maximum progression.
The fully revised upper, molded heel counter, locked-in tongue straps, and a recut of the DURACAP underlay offer an essential fit that is more breathable and durable where skaters 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 made even better with the SickStick rubber compound, plus an internal heel shank to deliver more grip, more boardfeel, more support, and more durability.
The all-new Skate Classics give you the look you want—with the performance benefits that real skaters demand. SKATE CLASSICS ARE MADE FOR SKATEBOARDING.
