VANS PRO SKATE INTRODUCES THE KYLE WALKER PRO FEATURING VANS WAFFLECUP
Very proud for our good homie Kyle Walker on dropping his new shoe on Vans! Marking the cherry on top of an incredible year earning mindblowing video parts and a newly minted pro board, Vans welcomes Oklahoma-native Kyle Walker to the signature footwear ranks with the debut of the Kyle Walker Profeaturing Vans WAFFLECUP, available worldwide July 9.
The all-new Kyle Walker Pro features Vans’ revolutionary WAFFLECUP technology, delivering the best of both worlds—the support and stability of a cupsole shoe without sacrificing any of the boardfeel and grip for which legendary vulcanized Vans skate shoes’ are revered.
Humbled by his recent career trajectory and excited about his upcoming shoe launch, Walker remarks, “I wanted my shoe to be simple, but it’s funny because it didn’t come out simple at all—I made my insole way thicker, as well as the tongue, and with the Wafflecup sole, there’s a lot more cushioning in my shoe than today’s standard.” He continues, “I was going for comfort – it grips well, and it skates great right out the box. I’m happy with it, for sure.”
Employing years of critical performance feedback and enhanced skateboarding progression, Vans’ WAFFLECUP innovation continues to provide skateboarders with superior levels of cushioning and durability with Vans ULTRACUSH HD impact sockliners and DURACAP rubber underlays in high-wear areas.
