Although Vans are a skate brand at their core they are a mainstay in the modern footwear industry, skater or not, it’s more than likely that everyone owns at least one pair. Vans transition from the sun-drenched skateparks of California the global market has been an ongoing endeavour since the brand began in 1966, and have since diversified so effectively they’re now some of the most recognisable shoes on the market. Over the last forty years or so, the silhouettes Vans have been known have stayed roughly the same, despite the brands entry into the lifestyle market, however the Vans Varix WC is looking to change that.
The Varix WC is the brands first lifestyle shoe, and although it draws heavily on skate culture day-to-day wear and accessibility were at the forefront of the shoe’s design. The Varix WC features an UltraCush footbed and Vans WaffleCup™ sole unit, ensuring comfort and easy mobility for the wearer. The shoe itself is built from highly durable materials including vulcanised rubber and premium leather additions, while the design is a direct mix of 2000-era skate shoes and modern footwear aesthetics.
The Vans Varix WC is now available in-store and online, with sizes ranging from UK6 – UK12 (including half sizes), priced at £100. Click here to shop.
