To improve the proven Vans Pro Classics models, such as Authentic, Era, Old Skool, Sk8- Hi or Slip-On, a lot of thoughts went into the project in Costa Mesa. Together with the design & skate team they tried to design shoes that have the familiar look of Vans Classics, but ensure the durability and performance of modern skate shoes.
In addition to new design accents, a lot has changed technically – the Waffle Sole 2.0, a new DURACAP, the higher, double foxing tape and the new tongue straps make a noticeable difference, so far so good. Even if the silhouettes have remained largely the same – inside the shoes, a lot of things have changed. The improvements made are not only noticeable in terms of fit and board feel – a particular concern was also to make the shoes more durable and long-lasting.
