Vans Skate Sport Shoes in Black and Gum. Arriving as part of the brand’s revolutionary Skate Classics collection, these remastered low-profile Vans Skate Sport sneakers are designed with maximum progression and innovative boardfeel in mind. Styled with fully-revised uppers crafted from both reinforced suede and leather, these classic-style skate shoes feature enduring DURACAP underlays, SICKSTICK rubber compounding and ‘best-in-class’ PopCush cushioning equipped with snap-back insoles for improved impact resiliency and day-on-day comfort. The two-part foxing features a tougher toe-knurl for heightened board-contact, whilst Vans’ iconic gum rubber sole supplies an all-season tread well-suited to any given terrain. Tonal bartack stitchings across the quarter-panels provide added security across high-stress areas, whilst the grey-tone sidewall stripe complements the seamless 5-eyelet lacing system as it secures the colour-matched embroidered ‘Off The Wall’ tongue against the natural arch of the foot. Collection-exclusive ‘Vans Skateboarding’ insoles commemorate the design’s ode to skate-specific function, whilst the reimagined skate-centric heel scab seals the design in style across its washed gum-brown coloured heel.
Redesigned with ‘skaters in mind’, Vans’ latest Skate Classics collection delivers ‘more of what skaters need to enable maximum progression’. Inspired by archived classics and the brand’s on-going cross-cultural legacy, Vans’ core collection for Skate Classics sets its sights on being one of the most innovative collections of all time.
