Vans, always good for revamping the classics, comes through with the Era 46 Pro! Right on time, the Era 46 Pro uses durable pig suede, hemp, and canvas uppers on vulcanized outsoles with high-grade PU footbeds and original Vans waffle grip. These shoes, just like the original Vans Era, have slightly padded collars and no padding in the tongue, but with the Era 46 Pro, Dura-cap reinforced toe and ollie areas come into play, giving longer lasting flick and protection from toe stubbing.
8. Vans Type II
The Vans Type II, once just hype among the skate community, finally surfaced Holiday 2011. This shoe is all skate business with suede and canvas uppers, a vulcanized construction, padded tongues and collars, supportive elastic tongue centering straps, and a contoured footbed. The Type II proves to be the new low-top champ at the skate spot every time with its whole new arsenal of comfort and performance innovations, increasing cushioning to the feet, and furthering board-feel.
The Chukka Low was designed with the skaters on the Vans team. The inspiration was based on shoes like the Authentic and the Chukka Boot and features a slightly padded upper, a one piece toe cap, and the classic Vans waffle grip. This shoe is bound to be a classic in the timeless style of Vans. Also check out the Vans Chukka 59 Pro.
