Vans presents the all-new Skate Classics, our most iconic silhouettes with an updated, extra-tough construction designed first and foremost for skateboarders. Completely redesigned with skaters in mind, Skate Classics deliver reinforced materials and upgraded construction while providing added durability and energy-return cushioning for longer skate sessions, with a few finishing touches to the overall aesthetic. Skate Classics start with fully revised uppers that incorporate reimagined patterns and an all-new last for better heel fit. A molded heel counter and locked-in tongue straps with premium heel hold keep feet locked in for better control. The DURACAP underlay takes on a new shape, adding flexibility and removing excess bulk to eliminate hot spots, resulting in an essential fit for maximum durability where skaters need it most. Two-part foxing featuring a heavier knurl texture on toe bumpers, as well as Sick Stick, a new proprietary gum rubber compound, increases the durability and longevity of the shoe. Rounding everything out is the PopCush footbeds that snap back and won’t pack out, keeping legs feeling fresh to skate longer.
