Vans Skate Old Skool Shoes in Dress Blues. Arriving as part of the brand’s latest ‘Skate Classics’ collection, these remastered Vans Skate Old Skool’s pay tribute to tradition with their archival updated redesign. Styled in a refined deep navy colouring in honour of its formal namesake, these low collared skate shoes feature revised uppers crafted from canvas and suede, whilst the PopCush footbed, Sick Stick gum rubber compound and the updated undercut combine to complement the extended two part foxings and the auxetic outsole for elevated resilient and abrasion resistance. A grippy Waffle tread underfoot grip remains loyal to tradition as it tackles challenging terrains with ease, whilst the DURACAP underlays across the contrast stitched uppers provide an added layer of reinforcement well suited to any demanding skate style. The classic sidewall stripe features the ‘Skate Classics’ collection exclusive checkerboard trim, whilst the recessed 8 eyelet lacing system secures the locked-in tongue straps in place across the front panel and the natural arch of the foot. Light padding to the collar provides additional cushioned support, whilst the updated heel scab features iconic ‘Off The Wall Skateboarding’ branding that honours the design’s timely update.
Centred on delivering the very best in all season performance and inspired by a desire to help skaters of all abilities progress in each and every direction they desire, Vans’ evolutionary ‘Skate Classics’ collection is one focused on honouring both archival design and contemporary innovation. Inspired by the #36 Old Skool’s classic formula, this latest update pairs performativity with functionality to honour one of the most iconic skate shoe silhouettes of all time.
