Kyle Walker's pro model shoes blend the responsive flexibility of a classic vulcanized sole with the impact support of a cupsole thanks to Vans' Wafflecup Construction. The plush Ultracush HD footbed offers additional impact protection needed for gaps and stairsets. Vans also added Duracap reinforced suede throughout the upper for extra abrasion resistance. What this means for you is more flick for your hard-earned money. You can tell Kyle went all out on these so take advantage.

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.

Cupsole - Cupsoles are durable, well-cushioned and provide the best impact protection against hard landings. The sole consists of a single rubber layer, reinforced with glue then stitched to the upper. Cupsoles generally last longer than vulcanized soles, but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.


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' Waffle Outsole let them feel their board while staying firmly connected to it.

Wafflecup Construction - Vans’ revolutionary Wafflecup construction offers today’s skateboarders the support of a cupsole without sacrificing any of the grip and board feel of a traditional vulcanized shoe. Now you can have your cake and eat it too. Leave it to Vans Pro Skate to innovate with skateboarding’s first-ever vulcanized cupsole.

At long last, skateboarding’s perennial problem solved: cupsole support or vulcanized boardfeel? Never be forced to choose again.

Duracap - Vans shoes with Duracap feature reinforced rubber underlays in the areas where your shoes wear out the fastest. Durcap was developed and tested to withstand the abuse of the Vans pro skateboarding team, and gives you added durability even if you skate daily.

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.

Feels good

Vans Kyle Walker Pro Skate Shoes - navy/white
I usually skate the lowest price low tech shoes. I mean they are just gonna be toast in a month anyway. The Kyle Walkers have changed that mindset. 35 years of skating and the Chucks are gone never to return. Board feel is great and my feet feel great after a session. You can teach an old dog a new trick

Vans Kyle Walker Pro Skate Shoes - navy/white
Very comfortable, I own two pairs and have skated in them for about a month. Excellent job from vans on the waffle cup sole. Can't wait to see more colors. I would have half sz up if you're used to wearing thinner vans like eras & old skools.

The fit true to size, however are a little tight at first. After wearing for a few days they stretched to fit my foot perfectably. I've gotten a ton of complements on them and would highly recommend!

these are super tight, usually skate thinner shoes like the slip on pros and wasn't sure how the board feel would be, but it was still perfect and protected my feet even better too

K-Walks for the Win

Vans Kyle Walker Pro Skate Shoes - black/blue fog
Had 3 pairs of Gilbert Crocketts and switched to these. A bit heavier in comparison to the Gilbert's, but really comfy. Great board feel and support. Fit true to size in comparison to other Vans. Elastic on the tongue keeps it centered which is a great feature. Would recommend wearing them around for a few days before skating to break them in properly just like other shoes. Congrats to Kyle W for winning SOTY.

Asked by Broc on 9/12/2016
How's the fit? Cupsoles in other brands usually run bigger than vulcs
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 9/12/2016
These run true to size and I would order the same size you would in any other vans
