With Anthony Van Engelen's unrelenting power and style, he wouldn't put his name on a shoe unless it was the best damn shoe he's ever put his foot into. Designed with Vans' Ultimate Waffle construction and a combination of Duracap and RapidWeld technology, this shoe provides uncompromising support and durability. With a LuxLiner bootie construction, the shoe fits snug and secure, while lightweight mesh on the tongue and inner panels let your feet breathe. Building his legacy of innovation, AVE has designed the most technically advanced Vans shoe to date.

Cupsole - Durable and shock-absorbing to provide the best impact protection against hard landings. Cupsoles generally last longer than a vulcanized sole but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.


Original Waffle Outsole - Made with soles twice as thick so they would wear longer, this original formula combines durability with flexy board-feel to keep all the Vans' fans happy.

UltimateWaffle Construction - A combination of superior grip, built-in impact cushioning and uncompromising support and flex. The full-length molded midsole and internal shank offer a unique construction you have to feel to believe.

LuxLiner Bootie Construction - This advanced liner construction improves the comfort and fit by enabling the shoe to conform and move with the shape of the foot. This free-floating liner is an extension of the tongue. It's hidden under the front surface of the shoe and is able to move independently from the outer shell.

This system increases airflow, breathability and reduces any chance of hot spots or pinching in the toe box.

Duracap™ - Developed and tested to withstand the abuse of the Vans pro skateboarding team; reinforcement is provided through rubber underlays in the toebox and ollie-area for lasting durability to save you time and money.

RapidWeld - This progressive upper panel construction replaces the need for conventional stitching. This process utilizes a thin film between panels that bonds them together when pressed and heated.

This creates an extremely strong bond between the panels which is more durable, lighterweight, and more flexible than conventional stitching.

Vans AVE Pro Skate Shoes - blanc de blanc/black
First thing I noticed was their flexibility. I broke them in within a couple days and they feel amazing under my feet. Great job

They were so tight on the pinky toes that I couldn’t skate for a week after skating in them two days in a row. Tried a different paur of Vans, same thing. Bummer.

Tight shoes

Vans AVE Pro Skate Shoes - white/smoke
These have elastic connecting the tongue to shoe making the tongue area very very tight making them hard to wear all day. Thinking about cutting the elastic out. Besides that awesome shoes.

Best shoes I've ever bought
by Jacob J

Vans AVE Pro Skate Shoes
I've had these shoes for 6 months. In that time, shoes would generally start to show signs of wear. I have a limp that usually causes one shoe to lose tread faster than the other. At this point the tread had not worn whatsoever. The shoes are thin and extremely breathable. I usually have issues with smelly feet and athlete's foot. Not the case with these. There's no splits in adhesive. Other than dirt, they are in the exact condition of the day I bought them.
