All New Skate Classics: Built Extra Tough on the Inside For Skateboarding The unique cast of characters that create the snow community define us. These are individuals looking to explore, express, and champion their authentic selves.
The Vans x PUBLIC collection is proud to continue that unique legacy and celebrate the individuality that brings us together. Part of a collection that was built from the ground up to shine a light on what makes our snowboard community so completely bold and unique, the Vans x PUBLIC Skate Slip-On features all the elements of our new Skate Classics collection to deliver more of what you need to enable maximum progression. The 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 Slip-On 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.
