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 Construction - For intuitive control, fifty years of proven Vans professional vulcanized natural gum rubber outsole constructions deliver the ultimate in board feel, flex and traction.
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.
RapidWeld - This progressive upper panel construction replaces the need for conventional stitching. This process utilizes a thin film between panels that bonds them together when pressed and heated.
This creates an extremely strong bond between the panels which is more durable, lighterweight, and more flexible than conventional stitching.
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.
