Since 1966 Vans has been putting shoes on the feet of skaters and surfers. Their canvas shoes with gum rubber soles gripped onto slick piers and skinny skate decks like nothing else before it. In short time their waffle pattern sole and colorful uppers became synonymous with southern California board riding culture. Throughout the '70s and '80s skatedecks grew bigger, surfboards got smaller, and music got louder. It was during these fast times that Vans solidified their reputation with legendary skateboarders and original punk rockers, Tony Alva and Steve Caballero.
Known by many as one of the most popular skate shoes of the early 90's, the Half Cab from Vans made its way onto the feet of almost anybody who rode a skateboard, or even knew someone who rode a skateboard for that matter. There's a reason this shoe has been a staple for so long. If you haven't peeped these out, you don't know what you're missing. Features of the Vans Half Cab Pro Shoe include Premium suede upper, Classic silhouette, Padded tongue and collar, High-grade PU footbed, Original waffle sole construction. Athlete Endorsed.
