The Sk8-Hi, formerly called Hi-Top, is at the forefront of the diverse Vans assortment. This shoe was the first shoe worldwide to be especially designed for skateboarding. The appearance of the Hi Top was similar to the Converse Chuck, but the version launched by Vans clearly was sturdier and more robust and offered better traction due to the waffle sole. Today, the Sk8 Hi is produced in varying colours and patterns.
The assortment at our online shop also features the Vans Authentic and Era which have again and again enhanced the shoe market over decades with new and trendy colours. The Vans Chukka is an absolute lifestyle shoe, always fashionable and mostly made of leather. The Rata is a moccasin-like shoe which goes down well with surfers. Thanks to the removable insole, this shoe can be rolled up so you can put it into the smallest bag. But the Slip-On is the special highlight of all Vans collections: this shoe without laces is especially popular among skaters. The Low-Top is a comfortable shoe with a high feelgood factor which can often be found in the lifestyle scene, but also in the emo or punk scene. The Slip-On in black and white chequer pattern probably is the most famous one, capturing the world of fashion as so-called "Checkerboard". Not only men and women are provided with the hip Vans stuff, no, also children will make a find. The waffle sole typical for Vans is the distinctive feature of the different shoe types offered by Vans.
