Completely redesigned for modern skateboarding, the all-new Skate Classics collection delivers more of what skateboarders need to enable maximum progression.
The repositioned Duracap reinforced underlays and fully redesigned uppers, combined with a new two-part foxing tape that features a deeper knurl pattern on the toe, make the new Checkerboard Skate Slip-On durable enough to withstand daily skateboarding abuse.
For more board control, the new molded heel counter and internal tongue straps lock in your feet.
Even the gum rubber sole that made Vans famous has been elevated with the Sickstick rubber compound to deliver more grip and boardfeel.
Plus, Popcush energy return sockliners provide superior cushioning and impact protection while helping to lessen leg fatigue for longer skate sessions. Internal heel stiffeners have also been added to provide more support and stability.
