As the latest iteration of the Vans slip-on model these black Slip-On EXP Pro Shoes have laceless uppers made from suede with a velcro fastener strap, cut out sections that reveal durable synthetic mesh below with a subtle checkerboard pattern and colourful jazz side stripes that result in an innovative yet familiar aesthetic. Built for the modern-day skateboarder who requires a high level of support, comfort and impact protection, a curved white rubber overlay wraps around the front of the toes and continues over a wide suede panel and breathable mesh insert which together provide a high level of durability. The elongated leather strap wraps around the side of the foot for a secure fit without deterring from the streamlined shape of the design and a blue, red and orange tone jazz stripe has been printed across one side with blurred start and end points. The midsole has been stripped back to reduce the amount of material separating the foot from the board and new WaffleControl technology features within the midsole with a tread that has been deepened on the heel to increase grip and abrasion resistance whilst also softening impact. A red and white rubber ‘Vans Off The Wall’ heel stamp completes the style.
Designed with a focus on delivering more breathability and support whilst skateboarding, Vans have updated their classic Slip-On model with an integrated curved strap system and an upgraded tread design that together secure the foot and provide quality grip, boardfeel and comfort. Working with their international team of pro skaters, new collections incorporate the latest innovative design details that achieve a balance between style and performance. Since launching in 1966 Vans have been continually pushing new footwear styles that answer to the needs of skaters whilst emulating classic Californian style.
