Vans Skate Slip-On Shoes in Dress Blues. Inspired by classic aesthetics and their formal deep navy colouring, these performative Vans Slip-On’s arrive as the latest addition to the brand’s progressive ‘Skate Classics’ collection. Styled with revised uppers crafted from a resilient blend of both durable canvas and brushed back suede, these low collar #98 Slip-On’s have been re-invented with both archival tradition and contemporary necessity in mind. Remodeled DURACAP underlays and a new two-part foxing combine well with the cushioned PopCush footbed for elevated everyday comfort and structural support, whilst the molded heel counter and classic Waffle tread outsole provide a stable and grippy wear regardless of terrain. Bold black piping across the midsole is a complement to the profile’s all-new monochrome checkered flag label, whilst the elasticated tongue straps help to provide additional flex as and when required. Light cushioning across the collar remains true to tradition, with the updated ‘Off The Wall Skateboarding’ rubber heel scab restyled in a striking white on black hue for added character and impact.
New for 2021 and led by an ode toward personal progression, Vans’ pioneering ‘Skate Classics’ collection is one that continues to rework a number of ageless classics to suit contemporary necessity. Improvements to boardfeel, durability, longevity and flex combine to help create a unique collection that’s wholeheartedly dedicated to skate-centric performative progression.
