When it comes to long-lasting cushioned support, these shoes take home the grand prize. The Wafflecup construction gives you the durability and support of a cupsole while still retaining the natural feel you get from vulcanized shoes. They also feature Van's UltraCush Lite midsole for impact absorption and a soft sock-fit bootie internally to reduce hot spots and increase responsiveness. The reverse Waffle Lug outsole offers great grip without adding weight so you can travel light all day in comfort and style.

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.
Wafflecup™ Construction - A vulcanized cupsole? YES. This revolutionary construction offers skaters the support of a cupsole with the board feel of a vulcanized shoe.
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.
