Tony Trujillo's most advanced shoe model yet, this shoe is packed with features to make it durable and supportive for rugged skating. The durable upper is reinforced with rubber shields and duracap to make these shoes extra resilient. Ultracush Lite 3D insoles bless your feet with fine tuned support without sacrificing that vulcanized board feel, and the Waffle Flex outsole has been beefed up to provide extra grip and durability in the highest wear areas.
- Thin rubber layers are placed on the outside of the upper in the highest wear areas for lasting durability and responsive flick.
- Pro VULC Lite Construction
- UltraCush™ Lite 3D
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.
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 - Developed and tested to withstand the abuse of the Vans pro skateboarding team; reinforcement is provided through rubber underlays in the toebox and ollie-area for lasting durability to save you time and money.
WaffleFlex - Modernized tread design is turned on an angle to create lateral flex grooves across the foot, which promotes anatomical movement. The tread blocks have also been spaced apart with recessed centers to reduce weight and increase flexibility.
UltraCush™ Lite 3D - Blends the lightweight and responsive feel of the UltraCush™ Lite sockliner with a dual-density foam surrounded by a molded heel cup for unsurpassed cushioning, boardfeel and support.
Not the most comfy shoe on the planet right out of the box, but once broken in they are pretty nice. That's why I rated them a 4/5.
