Cupsole - Cupsoles are durable, well-cushioned and provide the best impact protection against hard landings. The sole consists of a single rubber layer, reinforced with glue then stitched to the upper. Cupsoles generally last longer than vulcanized soles, but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Wafflecup Construction - Vans’ revolutionary Wafflecup construction offers today’s skateboarders the support of a cupsole without sacrificing any of the grip and board feel of a traditional vulcanized shoe. Now you can have your cake and eat it too. Leave it to Vans Pro Skate to innovate with skateboarding’s first-ever vulcanized cupsole.
At long last, skateboarding’s perennial problem solved: cupsole support or vulcanized boardfeel? Never be forced to choose again.
Molded Heel Pocket Insert - Anatomically molded heel cup inserts are shaped to lock heels in place without the need for bulky foam padding.
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.
