Gilbert Crockett is an all-terrain terrorizer, so it's fitting that the second incarnation of his signature shoe is equipped to handle most anything you throw at it. Vans Wafflecup Construction and superior cushioning combine to provide a comfortable ride that can help withstand the biggest of impacts, and allow you to roll away in one piece. This shoe is the perfect marriage of classic style, paying homage to legendary Van's shoes of the past, and modern technology focused on board feel and cushioning.

  • Duracap™

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.

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™ Construction - A vulcanized cupsole? YES. This revolutionary construction offers skaters the support of a cupsole with the board feel of a vulcanized shoe.

Molded Heel Pocket Insert - Anatomically molded heel cup inserts are shaped to lock heels in place without the need for bulky foam padding.

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.

There were UPS issues initially, but Grace, from Tactics support was very friendly and responsive. She sent out another pair when it seemed the package was lost. I got my shoes and love them!! They are apparently discontinued and I could not even get them at the Vans store. Thank you, Grace, for all your help!

Solid, but strange fit

The look great out of the box, however the stitching on the heel will rub your ankle raw. I skate a 9.5 and these seem to run a tad bit big. If you plan on skating these I would suggest sizing down .5 based on how narrow they are. Over all a great looking shoe, but you gotta break them in first

Vans Gilbert Crockett Pro Skate Shoes - black/white/gum
Vans first shoe to say on the inside "worlds number one skate shoe" and they wer right back then and they sure hold up this Crockett is a cup sole wich worried me to buy even tho I wanted them for a wile the new AV's are so good why worry but I just liked the cut on this shoe but I'm used to a vulc shoe so the cup sole I thought would be to hard well it wasn't I finally got some and brought both the AV's and the new Crocketts to try the Crocketts first but thought I would have to change back into the avs but within 20 minutes or so the new Gilbert Crocketts wer already broke in about rite from the box and not to hard at all now ther at the top of the roster
