Obviously Vans as a shoe brand needs no introduction, especially amongst skateboarders and street wear circles. Although they have many different styles, ranges and colour ways, the majority of their products seem to follow the general recipes. Not that this is a bad thing, but when you see the NEW VANS LVXI GRAPH shoe they’ve just put out, they may have change their strategy on this one. This is one of the more interesting Vans shoe releases of recent times and its very different from their usual canvas and signature out sole.
So as you can see this isn’t your regular every day vans shoe, and with a list of features makes this a pretty technologically advance shoe. The upper materials consists of a Synthetic Nubuck one piece toe cap which is extremely durable. To maximise breathability both side panels are full mesh that wraps around the heel, and the tongue is completely perforated. The shoe has a sock liner that secures your foot and a padded collar ensure comfort of the highest level.
A cup sole construction that is extremely light sits on top of a waffle flex tread that flexes in every direction to mould to your foot with every stride. The shoe also features ULTRAcush light, which is a EVA foam that provides impact support and comfort and is also very light weight.
