Shop this upgraded 'Skate' edition Vans Authentic in class Off White colour way at Hiatus Store. Hiatus is proud to be one of the limited stockists of the Vans Skate range which feature upgraded technology added to your favourite classic VANS skate shoe styles
This Skate Authentic shoe is upgraded with: POPCUSH™ insoles which provide superior impact cushioning. This means a lessening of general leg fatigue or injury, whether you skate them or walk them. DURACAP™ underlayers within the upper, combined with the outer foxing mean greater wear resistance. The strong suede fore of the foot also adds to this durability. Great if you skate or just to extend it's life through everyday wear.
Even such features that we take for granted such as the VANS waffle print sole, which gives great board grip, has been upgraded. VANS are casting this sole from SICKSTICK™ in these Skate Editions, which is an even grippier rubber compound than in the classics. Plus there are additional supporting features like the heel stiffeners, internally inserted for greater structural support, and the tongue straps which keep the shoe in shape and supportive.
As with the other editions within the VANS Skate range, these Authentics are picked out by more exclusive trim. This can be seen in the interior taping and the Checkerboard woven tag, which picks these out as a more premium release.
- INCREASED DURABILITY - DURACAP™ reinforced materials, deeper knurl texture on the toe bumpers, and higher sidewall heights provide a more heritage look with increased durability and protection.
- FULLY REDESIGNED UPPERS - Reconstructed with a molded heel counter and internal tongue straps for a locked-in fit and more board control.
- LEGENDARY GRIP - VANS proprietary SickStick™ gum rubber compound is their stickiest rubber yet.
- POPCUSH CUSHIONING - VANS best cushioning and impact protection. POPCUSH™ energy return footbeds help protect your feet while helping to lessen leg fatigue for longer skate sessions.
