Vans Ave Shoes
DON’T ASK FOR THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF BOARDFEEL AND SUPPORT. DEMAND IT.
For Anthony Van Engelen, “Good enough” isn’t good enough-he’s barely satisfied with great. He’d only put his name on the most uncompromising, technically advanced skate shoe we’ve ever made, so you can imagine how demanding the design process was for his signature shoe, the AVE. Featuring combined DURACAP™ and RapidWeld no-sew technology with our LuxLiner inner linings for the optimum fit and durability, the AVE is grounded on our new UltimateWaffle™ construction to create the best skate shoe worthy of its name. If it’s good enough for Anthony, you’re going to think it’s pretty great. The AVE is made with suede, mesh textile, and synthetic uppers.
•UNRIVALED DURABILITY - Reinforced DURACAP™ underlays and RAPIDWELD™ no-sew construction create durable uppers built to withstand the daily abuse of skateboarding.
•SUPERIOR GRIP AND CUSHIONING - UltimateWaffle™ construction creates a combination of superior grip, built-in impact cushioning, and uncompromising support and flex.
•LOCKED-IN FIT - The LuxLiner™ tongue and internal liner integration provides the comfortable, locked-in fit that skaters demand.
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’revolutionary WAFFLECUP construction offers today’s skateboarders the support of a cupsole without sacrificing any of the grip and boardfeel of a traditional vulcanized shoe.
The UltimateWaffle is clearly the perfect combination of unrivaled support, thanks to an internal shank, built-in impact cushioning, and ultimate grip.
Vans LUXLINER integrates the tongue and internal lining to deliver a comfortable, breathable, and responsive fit.
This advanced stitchless upper panel welding replaces the need for conventional stitching by utilizing a thin film between panels that fuses them together when heated. RAPIDWELD’s extremely strong bond is more DURABLE, flexible, and lighter than conventional stitching.
