All new Skate Classics: Extra rugged construction for skateboarding.
Completely redesigned for modern skateboarding, the Skate Classics collection has even more of what skateboarding fans need to achieve maximum progress. This season, we worked with Elijah Berle to create a Skate Classics collection that reflects his passion for classic tattoo art, motorcycle culture, retro surfing and mid-century fashion.
Repositioned DURACAP™ reinforcements and a completely redesigned upper combined with a new two-piece rubber sole edge with a deeper knurled pattern in the toe area make the Elijah Berle Skate Half Cab durable enough to withstand the rigors of daily skateboarding. For more board control, there's a new molded heel counter and internal tongue straps. Even the rubber sole that made Vans famous has been improved with SICKSTICK™ rubber compound to provide more grip and board feel. The POPCUSH™ Energy Return insole provides optimal cushioning and impact absorption, helping to reduce leg fatigue during extended skate sessions. Internal heel reinforcement provides increased support and stability.
The updated rubber sole edge of the new Elijah Berle Skate Half Cab, along with rugged suede and a 6 oz and 10 oz (170g and 283g) canvas upper blend, give you the legendary look you want while giving you all the performance benefits skateboarding requires. And look for the new Checkerboard flag on the side to guarantee you get the best in style and modern skateboarding performance.
