First made in 1977, the Vans Slip-on gained popularity quickly amongst skateboarding culture. As times progressed Vans has made a fully redesigned shoe to keep up with the needs of skateboarders. Presenting the Vans Skate Slip-On, this shoe is apart of "Vans Skate Classics line" of footwear. These are the most iconic skate shoes created by Vans but revamped to fit the needs of modern day skateboarding. These shoes integrate tongue straps for a snug fit, DURACAP™ underlay for durability, SickStick™ a rubber compound used to make a grippy outsole, and internal heel shanks to deliver more board feel in order to create a classic yet modern skate shoe.
