The Vans Men's Skate Old Skool Shoes have been completely redesigned for modern skateboarding. Repositioned DURACAP™ reinforced underlays and fully redesigned uppers, combined with a new two-part foxing tape that features a deeper knurl pattern on the toe, make the new Skate Old Skool durable enough to withstand daily skateboarding abuse. For more board control, the new molded heel counter and internal tongue straps lock in your feet. Even the gum rubber sole that made Vans famous has been elevated with the SICKSTICK™ rubber compound to deliver more grip and boardfeel. The Vans Men's Skate Old Skool Shoes give you the iconic look you want, with all the performance benefits skateboarders demand.
