Rowley Rapidweld Pro Shoes
ReviewsRated (5) out of (5) stars (1 Reviews)
Heralding the occasion of his 20th anniversary with Vans, Geoff Rowley reinterprets the shoe that revolutionized our industry upon its introduction. The Rowley RapidWeld Pro features updated Vans Pro Skate innovations like the Wafflecup outsole construction, the first-of-its-kind outsole unit to offer skateboarders the best of both worlds: unrivaled boardfeel and superior support. Made with suede uppers and Vans’ RapidWeld detailing with an advanced stitchless construction for premium durability and comfort, it also includes DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high wear areas, UltraCush HD cushioning for the highest level of impact protection, and Vans original waffle outsoles made of a rubber that offers grip and support.
Vans’revolutionary WAFFLECUP construction offers today’s skateboarders the support of a cupsole without sacrificing any of the grip and boardfeel of a traditional vulcanized shoe.
The added DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high-wear areas are engineered to withstand the abuse of the vans pro skate team—and by providing lasting durability, save everyday skateboarders time and money.
Vans’ polyurethane-based ULTRACUSH HD sockliner keeps the foot close to the board, yet won’t pack out over time—providing our highest level of impact cushioning.
This advanced stitchless upper panel welding replaces the need for conventional stitching by utilizing a thin film between panels that fuses them together when heated. RAPIDWELD’s extremely strong bond is more DURABLE, flexible, and lighter than conventional stitching.
VANS ORIGINAL WAFFLE Outsole
Back in ’66, Paul Van Doren made the first soles of his new shoes twice as thick so they would wear longer and, unlike other shoe manufacturers, he used pure crepe rubber with no filler. That decision ended up defining Vans’ legacy when the world’s first skateboarders discovered how Vans’ now-LEGENDARY ORIGINAL WAFFLE outsole gum rubber compound provided superior board CONTROL and let them feel their board while staying firmly connected to it.
