Vans has taken the legendary Old Skool and added a healthy helping of functional tech to make it both more comfortable and more durable. With DURACAP upper reinforcement adding longevity to high-abrasion areas, and UltraCush HD providing heightened impact cushioning, these shoes are the perfect marriage of beloved Van's styling and premium tech. You can finally keep your feet and eyes equally happy, don't miss out on this revamped classic.
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.
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™ - Light, predictable cushioning and foothold, the UltraCush™ sockliner has odor-eliminating properties for superior comfort.
