PRO VULC Construction
Vans’ legendary vulcanized rubber sole construction is called PRO VULC. It provides the ultimate boardfeel, maximizing the rider’s ability to feel their feet while skating.
Skateboarding’s first-ever vulcanized cupsole! Vans WAFFLECUP construction offers grip and response in the vulcanized forefoot and loads of support throughout the perimeter using cupsole technology.
ULTRACUSH HD Sockliner
If comfort is key, the Ultracush HD Sockliner is your best bet. This is Vans’ highest level of IMPACT cushioning. Vans UltraCush HD is a polyurethane-based foodbed that won’t pack out over time and keeps the foot close to the board.
ULTRACUSH LITE Sockliner
If board responsiveness is your #1 priority, check out shoes with the Ultracush Lite Sockliner. UltraCush Lite takes footbed technology to a new, lighter, dimension. The CMEVA-based low-profile foam footbed is anatomically contoured to put your foot closer to the board.
Do you like money? If so, check out Vans’ shoes with DURACAP reinforced rubber underlays. They are built to withstand skating abuse so you don’t have to buy shoes so often. If you don’t like money, feel free to send us any leftovers.
High abrasion areas on your feet will get relief with RAPIDWELD, an upper panel construction that replaces the need for conventional stitching in high abrasion areas. Vans’ replaces traditional stitching with a thin film between panels that fuses the panes together when pressed and heated. The result: a super strong bond between panels that is more durable, flexible, comfortable and lighter than ever.
This advanced liner system will enable your shoe to fit like a glove. Improve airflow and breathability. Reduce hot spots and pinching in high flex zones.
MOLDED HEEL POCKET Inserts
Forget the bulky foam padding that disappears in a week. Vans’ anatomically-molded heel cup inserts are shaped to lock your heels, providing stability that lasts.
