Vans TNT Advanced Prototype

Launching Saturday 14th July, the TNT Advanced Prototype is the all new signature shoe from Vans renowned skate icon Tony Trujillo. It's the perfect hybrid of TNT's DIY attitude and Vans extensive tech capabilities for a set of proper skate-ready shoes.

The TNT Advanced Prototype’s new functional waffle tread pattern evolves the classic waffle sole to provide more ground contact for an immediate, broken-in feel. On the inside the new silhouette utilises UltraCush Lite 3D footbeds which can take some impact, there are also mesh panels for ventilation to go harder for longer. They already had Duracap-reinforced uppers, but they also benefit from rubber reinforcements across the quarter panel and vamp, addressing sensitive wear and tear areas for tough skateboarders.

Launching in four colourways - sunflower, black/magenta/white, black/white/red - the hyper limited distro marshmallow Checkerboard is a really sick throwback to the origins of the checkerboard, referencing skaters personalising their own soles in the late seventies with marker pens to create that iconic look.
