Being earth-conscious means more than just utilizing responsibly sourced materials. It means taking a holistic approach to health and sustainability. These key values are the guiding principles in VANS crafting this collection, with the goal being to make a more thoughtful product from the ground up.
From 100% certified organically grown cotton canvas uppers to a responsibly sourced natural rubber outsole that still maintains the grip and durability that Vans has been known for since 1966, the VANS Eco Theory Sk8-Hi 38 Decon SF combines environmental consciousness with the classic VANS style you love. This deconstructed skate high top shoe also includes renewable hemp laces and water-based inks and glues.
