The shoes feature modified uppers that exhibit reimagined patterns and a new last for better heel fit. The versatile styles have a Duracap underlay, which adds flexibility and removes excess bulk to eliminate hot spots. There’s two-part foxing in each pair that includes Sick Stick, a new proprietary gum rubber compound, to increase the durability and life of the shoe. They also feature PopCush energy-return footbeds to give legs the endurance to skate longer.

The first shoe to debut from the collection is the Skate Half Cab 92, which comes in a golden brown suede and incorporates a heavy canvas and classic black tongue. The Skate Old Skool comes in navy suede with a golden brown leather Sidestripe and denim-inspired stitching. While the Skate Sk8-Hi features navy suede overlays on golden brown quarter panels with contrast white stitching. All of the shoes feature the red checker board flag on the tongue, classic black foxing, and a ‘90s grunge-inspired plaid footbed.

The Vans Skate Classics Andrew Reynold Collection will be available online at Vans.com and at Vans retail locations on Sept. 1.
