The Era Pro skate shoes from Vans are a major step in tweaking and upgrading the skate performance of one of the best selling classic shoes. A few years back the Vans team skated Classics, loved them, and kept requesting them with performance footbeds. Seeing the popularity, Vans introduced Era Pros, but had not put the product in their permanent rotation until now.
This put a stake in the ground to combat the knock-off products and remind everyone who was the first and who is still the best at performance vulcanized.

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. These don't provide as much foot protection as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
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.
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.
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.
