The Vans Half Cab skate shoes, or "Style 33", was Steve Caballero's second signature shoe, originally released by Vans in 1991. Steve was a vert skating pioneer, having invented many of the tricks that are standard today, including the Caballerial (fakie 360° ollie). The Half Cab has become one of the most legendary skate shoes of all time, worn by an entire generation of pro riders who redefined street skating.

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.


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.


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.

This is probably my 4th or 5th pair. I keep coming back to these like a crack addict with a bad habit. I like knowing I have a ankle support

Vans Half Cab Pro Skate Shoes - lizard/eucalyptus
Half Cabs never fail. Ollies feel like magic, and there is endless board control. Flick takes a little to get used to, but once you've got it and stick with vans it never fails. I exclusively skate half cabs and rowens now because I haven't found anything I like more that's not fcking nike.
