Somewhere between hiking boots and skate shoes lies the ultimate construction to provide support and comfort for most adventures. Vans keeps these shoes light by using a sock-fit bootie construction with warm linings and seamless internals, which reduces friction and hot-spots. They also feature a grippy reverse-waffle outsole with a UltraCush™ Lite foam footbed for cushioning. If your range of exploration is unlimited, these are the shoes for you.

Cupsole - Durable and shock-absorbing to provide the best impact protection against hard landings. Cupsoles generally last longer than a vulcanized sole but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
MTE Collection - Vans' Mountain Edition series features durable materials, reinforced construction and weather-resistant features to ensure you don't just look good, but feel good even out in harsher elements.
LuxLiner Bootie Construction - This advanced liner construction improves the comfort and fit by enabling the shoe to conform and move with the shape of the foot. This free-floating liner is an extension of the tongue. It's hidden under the front surface of the shoe and is able to move independently from the outer shell.
This system increases airflow, breathability and reduces any chance of hot spots or pinching in the toe box.
Reverse Waffle Lug Tread - Reverse Waffle Lug tread pattern is grippy and tough for wherever you’re trying to get to.
UltraCush™ Lite - Vans' UltraCush™ Lite low-profile foam sockliner is ultralight and anatomically contoured for quick, responsive cushioning, providing a natural fit and ride.
These shoes are so comfortable they make me wonder why I stopped wearing cupsole shoes. I can't wait till next winter when I could really put these to the test.
