Vans launched its third range of lightweight beach sneakers that are built and marketed for the demanding environments favored by surfers. Diverting from its iconic skate shoe designs—Classic Slip-ons, Old Skool high-tops and the Canvas Authentic—the brand has delved into the world of breathable mesh and UltraCush midsole cushioning to add a technical component and create a performance-driven shoe. The beach sneakers feature a stitchless construction and seamless LuxLiner sock-fit bootie for comfort.
Proven to adapt to the long sand-filled journeys, the Vans UltraRange Rapidweld ensures versatility and flexibility. The product has been launched in a light nuanced palette, communicating the laid-back vibe of the West Coast, as well as a bold red design that abruptly breaks up the colorway.
