This season, the Skate Classics collection has been completely redesigned to support modern skateboarding. Vans partnered with Elijah Berle, creating a collection that exhibits his love for classic tattoos, motorcycles, surf, and mid-century fashion. The Skate Half Cab features DURACAP™ reinforced underlays and a redesigned upper with two-part foxing tape and deeper knurl pattern on the toe to deliver maximum durability. For improved board control, the shoe includes a molded heel counter and internal tongue straps that lock feet in. Vans' famed gum rubber sole has been updated with SICKSTICK™ rubber for extra grip and boardfeel. POPCUSH™ sockliners cushion and reduce leg fatigue, while internal heel stiffeners add support.
