These Reissues pay homage to the original high top that first brought the supportive sensibilities of an athletic boot to the world of skating. The popularity of the Sk8-Hi look followed suit, becoming a favorite amongst skaters, musicians, artists, and counter culture types alike. Today they remain in their original form, a perennial classic, built like they always have been.

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. These don't provide as much foot protection 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 - Made with soles twice as thick so they would wear longer, this original formula combines durability with flexy board-feel to keep all the Vans' fans happy.
Molded EVA Footbed - Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA) insoles are a firmer material than you would find on standard orthotic insoles to offer better shock absorption while reducing the weight of the overall shoe.
