We're stoked to bring in a throwback feel this season created by Vans
and Drag Board Co
., for the sidewalk to the sea. Vans collaborated with one of the most Off The Wall surf brands out there: Drag Board Co., an Australian softboard company that is more belly-basher gang/endlessly entertaining content producer than surf company.
This collaborative collection features
durability, lightweight versatility, upgraded lacing, water-based inks and more.
Whatever adventure you're heading into this Spring, there's a pair fit to withstand the wear and tear.
Meet the UltraRange Exo
Vans believes adventure begins when things go sideways, so they developed a shoe that would not only stand up to the journey, but keep you comfortable in the most uncomfortable of situations. Their redesigned co-molded outsole with a reverse lug waffle pattern is built to maximize rubber coverage, grip, and durability while maintaining lightweight versatility, and the all-new, full-length UltraCush Lite midsole combines featherweight comfort with complete support. Armed with updated RapidWeld detailing, a breathable Old Skool-inspired upper, and a revamped rubber toe and forefoot shape to provide an optimal fit without sacrificing Vans design DNA, this is the UltraRange-evolved. The UltraRange EXO is made with sturdy textile and synthetic uppers.
A Nod to High Times with the Sk8-Hi 138 Decon
The Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF combines the iconic Vans high top skate shoe with the Vans Surf SF build to create an upgraded, deconstructed lace-up style. Featuring sturdy textile and suede uppers with a tropical checkerboard print, the Tribal Check Sk8-Hi 138 Decon SF also includes ULTRACUSH™ Lite drop-in sockliners for elevated cushioning, lightweight and flexible single-wrap foxing tape, and durable rubber outsoles with the Vans classic waffle pattern. It is made with water-based inks and glues.
Slip in with Ease with the Surf Boot 2 Mid
Inspired by the carefree, ego-less approach that embodies Drag's mantra of riding whatever it takes to keep it fresh, fun, and never-too-serious in the water, the Vans x Drag Surf Boot 2 Mid is the boot you've been waiting for. Designed to keep you "Off The Wall" and in the water, the Surf Boot 2 Mid has been built to exceed the needs of the Vans team, every inch and every stitch crafted for comfort and performance in all conditions. Made with legendary Vans grip extended on the sides and toes to give unmatched control and unfiltered boardfeel at any contact point, the Vans x Drag Surf Boot 2 Mid also includes a flame print and collaboration details, a seamless second skin fit that puts nothing between you and your board, a molded toe cavity for added comfort, liquid rubber dipped neoprene for warmth in cold water, and a perforated neoprene outsole to allow for optimal water flow, regulating temperature and preventing water buildup.
