12 Feb 2019
OFFICIAL DIG PARTNERS: VANS
Well, this sure is awesome! Vans have updated their classic waffle sole into something a little bit more supportive and resistant for us lot on two wheels. The Wafflecup BMX construction provides "unrivaled support and durability without having to sacrifice precious pedalfeel. A herringbone underlayer adds a second life beneath Vans’ classic gum rubber compound that has a more rigid flex pattern—all reinforced like a tank. Designed, tested, and approved by today’s top riders." Get all the info below and snag a pair at vans.com/bmx
Built with a rigid ex-pattern, Vans Wafflecup BMX features a herringbone underlayer on the outsole that extends the life beneath Vans’ classic gum rubber compound. Fabricated in black and checkerboard suede and canvas uppers and his name emblazoned on the tongue, Kevin Peraza’s custom endorsed colorway of the Old Skool Pro BMX is the most progressive BMX shoe from Vans to date. Equipped with UltraCush HD footbeds and Duracap-reinforced uppers, this all-new Vans Pro Classic silhouette also features BMX-specific medial side support for extra crank and pedal protection.
Rounding out Vans’ partnership with Kevin Peraza are two t-shirts featuring Southwest desert inspired graphics on the back and chest, as well as arrows, lightning bolts and cactus visuals along the arms of the long-sleeved tee.
Born and raised by a thoroughbred BMX family in Tucson, Arizona, X Games Dirt and Park Gold medalist Kevin Peraza is a rare hybrid of street, dirt and park riding wrapped up in one giant smile on wheels. One of the top riders on the Vans BMX Pro Cup tour, Kevin has played tourist worldwide, while traveling the to the far reaches of earth in search of the elusive hand rail, dirt jump, transition or even a curb-cut to blast. Kevin’s riding style and skillset is only matched by his positive attitude, which is always on point.
Highlighting Vans’ unrivaled support and durability in the new shoe, the brand’s “Feel Support’d” global campaign embraces the tone of a self-help support group led by Vans WaffleCup mascot Krispy Von Krunchworthy. Vans will play host to local “BMX Support Group” events around the world to further extend support for this beloved Vans community.
