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.
MTE Collection - Vans' Mountain Edition series features durable materials, reinforced construction and weather-resistant features to ensure your feet don't just look good, but feel good even out in harsher elements.
Tec Tuff - Tec Tuff is a durable, environmentally friendly finish applied to the upper to resist abrasion, oil and stains.
