Vans_Pro Classic Reinvented.
In 1977, Stacy Peralta and Tony Alva modified the already classic Vans Authentic™ by adding collar padding and a heel cap for support to create the now-classic Vans Era™, the first shoe designed by skaters specially for skateboarding. A lot has changed since those early days of skateboarding. Classic Style with Upgraded Cushioning and Durability. Identified by their distinctive PRO CLASSICS label package, Vans PRO CLASSICS are built to last longer with reinforced abrasion areas and provide the extra support and cushioning demanded by the world’s best professional skateboarders.
Vans’ polyurethane-based ULTRACUSH™ HD footbed keeps the foot close to the board, yet won’t pack out over time—providing our highest level of IMPACT cushioning.
The added DURACAP rubber reinforcement underlays in high-wear areas are engineered to withstand the abuse of Vans Pro Skate, and by providing lasting durability, save everyday skateboarders time and money.
