"Ensuring it’s not just all style and no substance, the Old Skool BMX is equipped with all of Vans’ BMX technology. The shoe features Vans’ revolutionary Wafflecup BMX, a first-of-its-kind technology in BMX that delivers the best combination of support and durability without sacrificing pedal feel. Specifically designed and tested by and for BMXers, Wafflecup BMX features a herringbone underlayer that adds a second life beneath Vans’ classic gum rubber compound with a more rigid flex pattern, all reinforced like a tank.
In addition, best-in-class upgrades like PopCush technology —which snaps back and won’t pack, offering impact protection and custom energy return — and DURACAP reinforced underlays in high-wear areas, add unrivalled toughness to prolong the life of the shoe.
Complimenting the footwear, the pack also includes a Vans x Federal LS Tee and snapback, both featuring Federal’s graphic logos.
Vans and Federal share a few team riders, including Bruno Hoffmann, Anthony Perrin and Dan Lacey, and together they hit up Tenerife in the Canary Islands to capture the collection in action. The edit, aptly titled Speed Dial, is available to watch HERE."
