Vans Celebrates 30 Years of the Half Cab.

January 14th, 2022

Vans celebrates 30 years of the Half Cab™, with the unveiling of the Skate Half Cab ‘92. Paying tribute to a silhouette that defined a generation of skating, the Skate Half Cab ’92 has been redesigned with skaters in mind while retaining its original heritage and the spirit of DIY innovation that made it an icon.

The Skate Half Cab ‘92 features a pig suede upper that incorporates a timely shift in the pattern, separating the toe cap and ollie patch for a more modern aesthetic. A molded heel counter and locked-in tongue straps with premium heel hold keep feet locked in for better control. The DURACAP underlay takes on a new shape, adding flexibility and removing excess bulk to eliminate hot spots, resulting in an essential fit for maximum durability where skaters need it most.

Two-part foxing features a heavier knurl texture on toe bumpers, as well as SickStick, a new proprietary gum rubber compound, increasing the durability and longevity of the shoe. In addition, Vans best-in-class PopCush energy-return footbeds snap back and won’t pack out, keeping legs feeling fresh to skate longer.

 The Skate Half Cab ‘92 is offered in dress blues and taupe is available now at Vans retail locations and Vans.eu/Skateboarding.
