Vans Era Pro Baker Kader/Purple Check
Kader pro colourway!
This season, Vans teamed up with the skate brand that has been “giving skateboarding a bad name since 2000” to deliver a unique collection of footwear and apparel. Celebrating both brands’ roots in skateboarding, the Vans x Baker Era Pro features sturdy suede and 10 oz checkerboard canvas uppers, single-wrap foxing tape, UltraCush HD sockliners to keep the foot close to the board while providing the highest level of impact cushioning, and Vans original waffle outsoles made of a rubber that offers grip and support. The Era Pro also includes DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high wear areas for unrivaled durability, and Pro Vulc Lite construction to deliver the best in boardfeel, flex, and traction.
The added DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high-wear areas are engineered to withstand the abuse of the vans pro skate team—and by providing lasting durability, save everyday skateboarders time and money.
Vans’ polyurethane-based ULTRACUSH HD sockliner keeps the foot close to the board, yet won’t pack out over time—providing our highest level of impact cushioning.
VANS ORIGINAL WAFFLE OUTSOLE
Back in ’66, Paul Van Doren made the first soles of his new shoes twice as thick so they would wear longer and, unlike other shoe manufacturers, he used pure crepe rubber with no filler. That decision ended up defining Vans’ legacy when the world’s first skateboarders discovered how Vans’ now-LEGENDARY ORIGINAL WAFFLE outsole gum rubber compound provided superior board CONTROL and let them feel their board while staying firmly connected to it.
PRO VULC LITE CONSTRUCTION
For intuitive control, 50 years of proven Vans professional vulcanized natural gum rubber outsole construction delivers the ultimate in BOARDFEEL, flex and traction.
