Vans Skate Era Shoes in TecTuff Black. Part of the brand’s latest ‘Skate Classics’ collection inspired by performative excellency and the desire to pair heritage aesthetics with an undying commitment to skate-centric necessity, this revolutionary and reinvented Skate Era is designed to make light work of even the most demanding of skate sessions. Styled in line with the classic low-profile silhouette, this redesigned skate shoe features an updated undercut, a new bottom-plate, double-up foxings and with two new sockliners across the interior for improved impact cushioning and step-on-step protection. Mixed material fabrications pair water-repellent TecTuff reinforced canvas with brushed-suede for a textural sense of wear, whilst the improved DURACAP trims and increased tread-depth across the Waffle outsole deliver hard-wearing function to suit any given terrain or skate style. Contrast crisp-white stitchings bring added depth to the sidewalls and padded ankle collar, whilst Vans’ new checkerboard tab remains loyal to the collection’s skate-specific mindset. The traditional 5-eyelet lacing system is technically advanced by its strap-secured tongue for a better sense of containment and supported heel-fit, whilst the improved heel stiffener atop the new ‘Skateboarding’ branded heel-scab signs these sneakers off with a touch of certified new-era character.
With a purpose to ‘ensure skateboarders all over the world have products that are built extra durable’ and withstand the demands of any active style, Vans’ revolutionary ‘Skate Classics’ collection is one inspired by heritage yet led by contemporary demand. Pairing heritage stylings with new and improved technical advancements across a number of core silhouettes, Vans continues to pioneer an industry that it helped establish way back in the early ‘70s.
