All new Skate Classics: Very durable inside, suitable for skateboarding
Completely redesigned for the modern skate, the brand new Skate Classics collection offers everything skaters need for maximum performance. And this season, we partnered with Elijah Berle to create a collection of Skate Classics inspired by his passion for the art of traditional tattooing, motorcycle culture, old school surfing and fashion of the 1950s.
The repositioned DURACAP reinforcements and completely redesigned upper, combined with a new two-part ribbon with deeper knurled pattern on the toe, make the Elijah Berle Skate Sk8-Hi Decon strong enough to withstand everyday skateboarding. The new buttress contoured on the heel and the inner ribbon tab ensure better skate control and a perfect fit. Vans' famous rubber-resin outsole has also been improved with the SICKSTICK# compound, to offer greater grip and boardfeel. In addition, the energy-returning POPCUSH insole offers maximum cushioning and impact protection, while reducing leg fatigue during longer skateboarding sessions. Internal heel reinforcements have also been added for added support and stability.
The revisited tape of the new Elijah Berle Skate Sk8-Hi Decon, along with an upper made of sturdy suede, 6 ounce (170 g) canvas and Velcro, offers the iconic look you’re looking for, with all the performance benefits required by skaters. And don’t miss out on the new side checkerboard label to make sure you get the most out of modern skateboarding style and performance.
