The Vans Sk8-HI Pro BMX shoes are the same high top classics that you love, but have been beefed up with Vans WaffleCup construction giving you extra support, durability and pedal-feel. Treated suede and Duracap underlay make these exceptionally durable, and the UltraCush HD insoles add extra comfort and impact absorption to the already supportive cupsole construction.
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.
Wafflecup™ BMX - The first of its kind, specifically designed with the BMXer in mind. Vans revolutionary WAFFLECUP™ BMX construction provides unrivaled support and durability without having to sacrifice precious pedal-feel.
At long last, BMXers' perennial problem is solved: Cupsole support or Vulcanized pedal-feel? Leave it to Vans BMX to innovate with BMX's first-ever vulcanized cupsole. Vans' revolutionary WAFFLECUP™ BMX construction offers today's BMXers the support of a cupsole without sacrificing any of the grip and pedal-feel of a traditional vulcanized shoe.
A herringbone underlayer adds a second life beneath Vans' classic gum rubber compound that has a more rigid flex pattern - all reinforced like a tank. Designed, tested, and approved by today's top riders. Feel Support'd.
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.
