The Vans Sk8-Hi BMX shoes are the same high top classics that you love, but have been beefed up with Vans WaffleCup BMX construction giving you extra support, durability and pedal-feel. Treated suede and Duracap underlay make these exceptionally durable, and premium PopCush insoles add extra comfort and impact absorption to the already supportive cupsole construction.
- Wafflecup™ BMX
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.
PopCush™ - Vans' PopCush insoles snap back and won't pack! This proprietary foam compound was meticulously tuned and tested for impact protection, superior cushioning, and custom energy return. This upgraded foam performs better than Vans' UltraCush™ compound for all types of skating so you can skate longer and go harder than ever before.
Wafflecup™ BMX - The first of its kind, specifically designed with the BMXer in mind. Vans' revolutionary WAFFLECUP™ BMX construction offers today's BMXers the support of a cupsole without sacrificing any of the grip and pedal-feel of a traditional vulcanized shoe.
A herringbone underlayer adds a second life beneath Vans' classic gum rubber compound that has a more rigid flex pattern - all reinforced like a tank. Designed, tested, and approved by today's top riders. Feel Support'd.
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.
