The Era Pro skate shoes from Vans are a major step in tweaking and upgrading the skate performance of one of the best selling classic shoes. A few years back the Vans team skated Classics, loved them, and kept requesting them with performance footbeds. Seeing the popularity, Vans introduced Era Pros, but had not put the product in their permanent rotation until now.

This put a stake in the ground to combat the knock-off products and remind everyone who was the first and who is still the best at performance vulcanized.

  • Vulcanized
Primary Upper Materials
  • Suede
  • Canvas
  • Original Waffle Outsole
  • Duracap
  • UltraCush HD
  • Padded Tongue and Collar

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.


Original Waffle Outsole - Back in '66 Paul van Doren made the first soles of his new shoes twice as thick so they would wear longer. That decision ended up defining the company when the world's first skateboarders discovered how Vans' Waffle Outsole let them feel their board while staying firmly connected to it.

Duracap - Vans shoes with Duracap feature reinforced rubber underlays in the areas where your shoes wear out the fastest. Durcap was developed and tested to withstand the abuse of the Vans pro skateboarding team, and gives you added durability even if you skate daily.

UltraCush HD - Vans' polyurethane-based UltraCush HD sockliner keeps the foot close to the board yet won't pack out over time, providing the highest level of Impact cushioning.

Vans Era Pro Skate Shoes - black/white/gum
Possibly the best shoe ever made by van's when it comes to thinner and moreally original style, I skated this shoe for about 3 months and I'd recommend them to anyone curious in trying them out

Vans Era Pro Skate Shoes
Great comfort and boardfeel. Sturdy. Looks good. The ultracush sole makes the shoe a little tight initially, but after a day or 2 of wear they feel just right.

Vans Era Pro Skate Shoes - black/black/asphalt
I have been wearing size 10.5 Vans for over 20 years. This is the first pair I have bought that did not fit. It seems like Vans has reduced the amount of material used in the shoes, making them extremely tight at the top of the foot.

Asked by Robert on 11/15/2016
Should I go down a half size for these? I was bummed when my slip on pros stretched out
Answered by James D (Tactics Employee) on 11/29/2016
I would recommend trying the same size you usually wear. These won't stretch out as much as the slip ons, but with the lases you'll be able to tighten them.
