The Slip-On Pro, a Vans classic upgraded for enhanced performance, features sturdy canvas and suede uppers, single-wrap foxing tape, brand new PopCush footbeds for superior cushioning and impact protection, and Vans original waffle outsoles made of a rubber that offers grip and support. The Slip-On Pro also includes DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high wear areas for unrivaled durability, and Pro Vulc Lite construction to deliver the best in boardfeel, flex, and traction.
The added DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high-wear areas are engineered to withstand the abuse of the vans pro skate team—and by providing lasting durability, save everyday skateboarders time and money.
Back in ’66, Paul Van Doren made the first soles of his new shoes twice as thick so they would wear longer and, unlike other shoe manufacturers, he used pure crepe rubber with no filler. That decision ended up defining Vans’ legacy when the world’s first skateboarders discovered how Vans’ now-LEGENDARY ORIGINAL WAFFLE outsole gum rubber compound provided superior board CONTROL and let them feel their board while staying firmly connected to it.
For intuitive control, 50 years of proven Vans professional vulcanized natural gum rubber outsole construction delivers the ultimate in BOARDFEEL, flex and traction.
