VANS WAFFLECUP Construction! The process our Vans SKATE design and development
team went through with Gilbert Crockett, Chima Ferguson, Andrew Allen and Chris
Pfanner began with a blank slate and resulted in this innovative, ground-up
design that fuses VANS ORIGINAL WAFFLE Outsole vulcanization technology with
modern cupsole performance. In numerous research and testing sessions skating
all terrains, the team kept the focus 100% on function. The result is pure
SKATE utility and the introduction of skateboarding’s first-ever
vulcanized-cupsole construction platform, the VANS WAFFLECUP.
construction technology combines all the best elements of a cupsole shoe, such
as increased support and durability, with the superior boardfeel and grip of a
tradition Vans vulcanized shoe. Vans WAFFLECUP construction was uniquely
designed entirely by skateboarders to specifically enhance your skateboarding
experience. Pure and simple.
