Adidas Pro Model Vulc ADV Skate Shoes Wear Test Review


Another iconic shoe from adidas has made the jump into the skateboarding scene; introducing the Pro Model Vulc ADV. A classic since it's initial release in the '60s as a court volleyball and handball shoe, the Pro Model has come a long way in the last six decades. While the housing of the shoe has been largely the same since it's inception, the Pro Model Vulc ADV is a whole new beast. Using the same AdiPRENE insole as the Superstars and Sucius, the Pro Model is ready for tech skating, carcass-tossing and everything in between.

We had our team rider and social media guy, Nick Propios, take a pair out to WJ Skatepark to let us know what he thought of them. Already a fan of the Superstar Vulc ADV, Nick was hyped to finally try out the hi-top version. He said the shoes were very stiff and rigid coming out of the box and recommends a few days of walking about in them before trying to get down on your board. The thinner toe on the AdiPRENE insole worked great for boardfeel, but the thickness of rubber toe made for less accurate flip tricks, but not to the point where he couldn't get techy with manuals. The thicker part of the insole, however, was great for impact protection but left something to be desired in the boardfeel department.

Being a high-top shoe, it's naturally more constricting on your foot than a low-top. The leather throughout the entirety of the housing didn't help in terms of breathability either, with Nick's feet being decently sweaty each time skating in these. Another factor was the that the insole is made completely out of a rubber compound with no fabric on the top to help absorb sweat, resulting in a slightly less secure footing within the shoe once you start sweating. Nick said that adding that layer of fabric would be the first thing he'd change about the shoe. After about three weeks of skating the shoe it still had plenty of life left in it; no blown seams, no bald spots on the sole, just a few ripped laces here and there. All in all, Nick would recommend this shoe to anyone who enjoyed the Superstar Vulc or anyone looking for a thicker, more durable shoe without having to sacrifice too much boardfeel.
