Arriving as the second pro-model instalment for the Oklahoman skater, this black and white Vans Kyle Pro 2 welcomes a number of contemporary edits to its OG profile. Swapping out the previous silhouettes 6-eyelet lacing system for a more ergonomic velcro-fastened closure, these low-profile skate shoes now host a quick and easy slip-on wear, whilst the PopCush footbed and the Wafflecup sole work together seamlessly to generate more stable and secure wear through any energised skate style. The overflowing foxing tape implements a reinforced finish across high-stress seams, fusing together effortlessly with the crisp-white midsole and the chunkier lug-style traction pattern that cuts through into the heel and arching midfoot for a more rustic yet urbanised sense of character. Classic single-stripe side panels are trimmed with colour-contrasting stitching, whilst the padded ankle collar, flat tongue and the ‘Kyle Walker’ printed ankle-pulls all work together as one to help provide ultimate comfort when it comes to practicality and boardfeel. Loyal to its pre-existing pro model from 2016, these streamlined monochrome sneakers are signed off with custom, rose-adorned ‘Vans x Kyle Walker’ diamond patches embroidered across each tongue, with the classic ‘Off The Wall’ heel branding now embossed across the rear for added texture and depth.
A profile that hosts similarities to the classic Slip-On EXP Pro shoes and more recent models from fellow pro-skaters and contemporary collaborators such as Anthony Van Engelen and Elijah Berle, these re-imagined Kyle Pro 2 shoes from the much-loved Kyle Walker are designed with precision-engineered purpose in mind. Honouring both Vans’ strive for skate-specific perfection and Walker’s untamable energy, these strap-fastened skate shoes effectively lock-in both contributors' never-dulling passion for the game, whilst their streamlined appeal leaves very little to be ignored.
