Vans Skate introduces the UltraRange Pro

via Vans:

Available worldwide Saturday, June 17, Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, proudly announces the global release of the UltraRange Pro. This revolutionary performance skate shoe is designed to enhance the fundamental union of skate cushioning and grip with the introduction of a unique co-molded bottom unit, combining Vans’ trusted UltraCush™ Lite foam with Vans’ original waffle outsole.

With decades of design heritage and more than 40 years of critical feedback from Vans’ legendary professional skateboarding team, the Vans UltraRange Pro’s versatile build pushes the boundaries of skate progression to provide uncompromising functionality with creative innovation. The UltraRange Pro also utilizes a brand-new internal sock-fit construction, providing a breathable, responsive and snug fit, along with ventilated tongue, collar and quarter panels for increased airflow.

FEATURE BENEFITS

  • A lightweight and durable co-molded outsole merging UltraCush™ Lite and Vans’ original rubber waffle tread for unparalleled cushioning and grip
  • Seamless LuxLiner™ internal sock-fit construction for a breathable, snug fit.
  • Molded Duracap™ reinforced pig suede uppers in high-abrasion areas for added durability
  • Breathable tongue, collar and quarter panel vents for increased airflow.

For my part, Vans is really pushing the envelope when it comes to design here. The Vault iterations of the UltraRange were hits with some but the ArcAd editions have sold out in most shops. I was just talking with an employee who had a pair of these and he really likes them. It's worth noting that this seems to be the sentiment of everyone we have spoken to who has a pair so far. Sure, the silo isn't one of the classic ones we are used to, but sometimes change is good, especially if it brings more tech and protection to skaters. We suggest giving them a try.

The Vans UltraRange Pro will be available this Saturday, June 17 at Vans Pro Skate retailers worldwide. Contact your local Pro dealer for specific release information.
