Vans Skate Old Skool Shoes in Black and White. Pairing a classic colourway with upgraded elements inspired by its advanced ‘Skate Classics’ collection ties, these new-season Van Skate Old Skools are designed to combine heritage styling with revolutionary skate-led performative function. Styled with mixed-material reinforced uppers crafted from both canvas and brushed-back suede, these low-collared skate shoes feature an improved undercut, a larger toe-knurl, revised bottom plate and double-up foxings that complement its adjusted Waffle-tread sole and DURACAP trims. Twin-layered POPCUSH sockliners provide exemplary impact resilience, flex and bounce from first wear, whilst the pre-installed heel counter helps keep unexpected scuffs and scrapes and bay. Contrasting white-stitch bartack trims accentuate the all-black quarter-panels and the retained all-leather side wall stripe, whilst the brand-new checkerboard flag-label honours Vans’ evolutionary ‘Skate Classics’ collection in line with the design’s streamlined sense of appeal. A recessed 7-eyelet lacing system secures the strap-adjusted tongue across the natural arch of the foot, while the padded ankle collar supplies further structural support fresh out the box. Sealed with Vans’ revisited ‘Off The Wall’ skate-centric rubber heel scab in a traditional shade of bright-red across its crisp-white auxetic outsole.
Following on from the brand’s debuting TecTuff release from earlier this year, the Vans ‘Skate Classics’ collection is one designed to celebrate heritage styling in line with contemporary necessity. Remodelling iconic profiles to suit the needs of modern-day skate settings, the ‘Skate Classics’ release keeps Vans’ ode to innovation in check when it comes to helping skater progress by all means possible.
