Two words: Arch support. Okay, you probably want to know more. ComfyCush takes the classic shell of a Slip-On and lines it with a one-piece interior that makes the break in process easy and generally provides a cushioned support for all-day comfort. This plus the arch support and classic colorways to choose from make these shoes an instant hit with both new and Old Skool Vans' fans.
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' rubber Waffle Outsole let them feel their board while staying firmly connected to it.
Gusseted Tongue - Keeps the tongue in place and keeps precipitation out.
ComfyCush Outsole - A co-molded cushioned midsole/outsole with a simplified one piece interior, added arch support and a moisture-wicking lining throughout resulting in a lightweight, comfy experience.
Ortholite® Cushioning - Lightweight, predictable cushioning and foothold with antimicrobial, odor-eliminating properties.
