The Vans UltraRange

The Vans Ultrarange

Is it an Old Skool? Is it Sk8-Hi? No, it’s a whole new Vans silhouette!

Billed as a sneaker “to get you there”, i.e. a kick built for everyday wear, the Vans Ultrarange is the brands’ first collection built specifically with comfort at the forefront. The Ultrarange are not skate shoes, they’re walking shoes. Traditional Vans silhouettes can sometimes feel a little heavy with quite a flat sole, maybe not ideal for trekking around but perfect for taking a battering while skating.

A little chunkier, with a more classically ‘sneaker-like’ silhouette & midsole, the UltraRange pairs do look a little different to your archive styles. This may take some getting used to for some die-hard Vans lovers, but some important features remain untouched. Much like other styles, pairs in the Ultrarange all feature signature Vans branding on the back of the midsole, and many pairs from the collection also feature the “Jazz Stripe” – a hallmark of the Sk8-Hi & Old Skool silhouettes.

The shoes are incredibly lightweight. New, interestingly named technologies have been created to make them so. UltraCush™ Lite foam cushioning is used from heel to toe alongside a fabric Luxliner™ that comes complete with a seamless inner sock.

Same but different, the classic Vans waffle outsole has been reversed, so the grid tread-pattern sticks out offering good grip

Our men’s & women’s collection comes in a range of colorways, with some nice autumnal burgundies for AW18 | Available online & in-store now
