Vans Old Skool Tapered VR3
The Vans Old Skool Tapered VR3 Shoes are a deconstructed version of our iconic sidestripe shoe. They feature a more slender and fitted silhouette than the traditional Old Skool. This classic low-top style also comes equipped with signature rubber waffle outsoles. In order to reduce the overall footprint of Vans, our team has set ambitious sustainability goals. In keeping with this, the Old Skool Tapered VR3 midsole is made using at least 25% biobased EVA foam, partially derived from plant-based sources. Big or small, all of our efforts add up to positive change. VR3 is the Vans commitment to sourcing 100% of our top 4 CO2 impact materials (cotton, leather, rubber and polyester) from Regenerative, Responsibly Sourced Renewable, and/or Recycled sources by 2030.
Products with the checkerboard globe VR3 logo represent Vans most sustainable offerings and contain Regenerative, Responsible Sourced Renewable or Recycled materials. • Regenerative: Materials produced using regenerative agriculture or grazing practices • Responsibly Sourced Renewable: Responsibly sourced renewable materials naturally regenerate in a human's lifetime and have been vetted for responsible production of feedstocks and processing methods • Recycled: Materials made from discarded items that are recycled into usable raw materials
