Capping off Vans’ landmark year of heritage celebrating 50 years “Off The Wall”, the original action sports brand and #1 skate shoe manufacturer…

…resurrects the most revered footwear icons of skate history this holiday season to send off the final installment of the Vans 50th Anniversary Pro Classics Collection, available worldwide now. Legendary in skate shoe design and an icon in its own right, the unrivalled Full Cab returns to the Vans Pro Classics lineup. Originally released in 1989, Steve Caballero’s namesake style revolutionized skate footwear history by inspiring street skaters with the clever innovation to customize the shoe by cutting its collar in half, and thus spawning the “lighter, better, faster” Half Cab® in 1993. In its full form, the Full Cab honors a true original, representing the foremost modifications in performance skate footwear of which Vans is known for today. Alongside the Full Cab Pro follows a trifecta of timeless silhouettes worn by three undeniable skateboarding legends including Ray Barbee, John Cardiel and Geoff Rowley. These influential skaters equally brought persona, style, and performance to an untouchable skate shoe trio highlighting the Old Skool Pro, the Chukka Pro, and the inimitable Rowley Pro, reintroduced this season in the original colorways of their time.


Breathing new life into the skate shoes we remember, know and love—and worn by true idols and innovators who made the industry—the Vans 50th Anniversary Pro Classics collection is enhanced with innovative performance features that provide upgraded cushioning and durability, featuring supportive ULTRACUSH HD sockliners for resilient cushioning and advanced comfort, and DURACAP reinforced underlays in high abrasion areas for premium durability and consistent fit. The iconic Full Cab joins new colorways of the Old Skool Pro, Chukka Pro and Rowley Pro for the final release of Vans’ 50th Anniversary Pro Classics Collection.
