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.
