Quality footwear is synonymous with the Vans brand. And their revolutionary UltraRange design takes those values to the outdoor adventure seeker. Each pair is armed with a co-molded UltraCush midsole, updated Rapidweld detailing, a lightweight, die-cut rubber outsole with a reverse lug waffle pattern, and a breathable, "Old Skool" inspired upper. The breathable upper keeps feet cool, while molded heel support ensures a steady grip on uneven terrain. The EXO even has a revamped rubber toe and forefoot shape to provide an optimal fit without sacrificing Vans design DNA — making this a truly evolved edition of the UltraRange.

Cameras, smart locks, entry and motion sensors — the Simplisafe Home Security System keeps you covered the inside out. Its collection of devices doesn't just alert you of an intruder, they also have 24/7 Professional Monitoring that contacts to the police. They provide eyewitness accounts including the invader's whereabouts, if they're armed, and what they're up to, so the police can dispatch faster than a non-verified alarm. But their security isn't only about intruders. The system can also protect your home from other threats like fires, carbon monoxide, and water damage.
