These were perfect when I was learning to kickflip on my hawk 25 years ago. Not much has changed with these Old Skool Vans since then. They’re still super comfortable, durable and make for the perfect skate or bike shoe. New to these Old Skool Vans are some new performance innovations, including extra shock-absorbing cushioning, and ultra sturdy reinforced uppers. These Old Skools last longer and provide the extra support and cushion than the old relics. Rarely do I get back on my board, but nothing brings back those memories like sliding a pair of these before heading out. Pick up a pair.
