The Vans Era skate shoes are a classic, your classic; the low-top lace-up that launched a thousand tricks. The Era shoes have taken skate style in its own Off The Wall direction and continues Vans' advancements in comfort and performance to a place of near perfection.

  • Vulcanized
Primary Upper Materials
  • Canvas
  • Original Waffle Outsole
  • Double Stitching
  • Crafted with a Soft Footbed
  • Padded Tongue and Collar

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support 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 - Back in '66, Paul van Doren made the first soles of his new shoes twice as thick so they would wear longer. That decision ended up defining the company when the world's first skateboarders discovered how Vans' rubber Waffle Outsole let them feel their board while staying firmly connected to it.

Double Stitching - Adds durability and in turn length to the life of your new shoes.

Vans Era Skate Shoes
Tactics is at its best with holding stock , competitive prices , super saving shipping and whatever else I missed. The shoes came in less then 5 days. They were the Vans Era with the red '' off the wall '' rubber tab on back of shoe. Which I prefer instead of the all white and black rubber tab. The red tab reminds me of the original vans before they changed the color to black and white. I haven't owned a pair of these in a hot while and I'm really glad I made the purchase w/ Thank you Tactics for making this a pleasant transaction !

Vans Era Skate Shoes - (suede & leather) port royale/asphalt
I skate the Vans Era Pro right before these and I hate the fat toe cap but I wanted a durable shoe. These shoes are leather and suede and held up better than the Era Pros to be honest. The only complaint I have is the insole which I removed and replaced with the thicker insole from my Era Pros. Beside the insole this shoe is my dream shoe.
