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.


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.

Pro VULC Lite Construction - For intuitive control, 50 years of proven Vans professional vulcanized natural gum rubber outsole constructions deliver the ultimate in board feel, flex and traction.

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.

Vans Sk8-Hi Pro Independent Skate Shoes - (independent) spruce
I received these after looking for them for weeks online. They are everything I had hoped. Comfortable, perfect fit. The only thing I could say is that they sent me a half size smaller than I had ordered but luckily I ordered them a little bigger intentionally and they still fit great. The color is amazing.

Vans Sk8-Hi Pro Independent Skate Shoes
I’ve been skating these for 2 1/2 months and I’m still skating these. But a big reason I’m still skating these is because I’m using hot glue for my kickflip hole (almost at the tip of the shoe). Really recommend these for sure. DO IT!!!
