'With the AVE Pro—my first cupsole in 15 years—we achieved a completely transformed upper with Vans’ Rapidweld technology and improved the grip and boardfeel in the sole overall,” Van Engelen said.
“This shoe for me was a natural progression toward making a durable, technical skate shoe. Not only does it deliver a lighter, longer lasting shoe for skating—but it’s an important step in innovation for Vans to pursue as the leader in skate shoes.”
The pro model also features LuxLiner™ technology, integrating the tongue and internal lining for a more snug and consistent fit, along with a molded heel counter for additional structure and heel lock. The best feature lies in Vans’ all-new UltimateWaffle outsole featuring an internal shank to keep flex in the forefoot, built-in impact cushioning with a full length Ultracush midsole, and unrivaled grip to present a shoe that has a familiar Vans feel and flexibility with the comfort and protection of a modern construction.
