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.

Great Shoe, one flaw

It’s a great shoe. The only complaint I have is the mesh panels. I’ve heard from other skaters about how they don’t last that long if you start to wear into the mesh. So I use these as my casual shoes. They look and feel amazing. Vans and AVE killed it with these shoes. I just think they should cost less. Other than that they are awesome

I like these a lot but prefer vulcanized to skate. These are great for day to day chilling or hiking.

Great looking durable shoe but on my medium width size 10 pretty average foot they bite the back of my heal. Gave them to one of my boys to use and they called out the same issue.

Great shoes

Vans AVE Pro Skate Shoes
Only 4 stars bc I had to shoe goo the upper mesh after the first week. Plus, damn son, 100 bones! It’s worth it tho and here is why: I have had these for 3 months, been thru 5-6 new decks (new griptape) and the bottoms are holding up like a champ. I’m gonna get 5-6 months of use out of these, so $100 is cool w/me.
