Mid-tops are great skate shoes. The padded collar provides more support for flip tricks and the classic Waffle outsole offers good board feel. Bring a little bit of retro into your life and enjoy the support and comfort that comes with it.
- Original Waffle Outsole
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 board-feel to keep all the Vans' fans happy.
PleasureCuff - Premium heel and collar construction that uses a lycra coated neoprene cuff wrapped around a soft layer of open cell foam at its core for superior comfort and heel support.
Duracap - Vans shoes with Duracap feature reinforced rubber underlays in the areas where your shoes wear out the fastest. Duracap was developed and tested to withstand the abuse of the Vans pro skateboarding team, and gives you added durability even if you skate daily.
