Vans Debuts Their Most Technical Team Model With The UltraRange Pro

It wasn’t too long ago when we were all left wondering “What Vans shoe is that on Tyson Peterson’s feet?” and, finally, we’ve gotten our answer.

To be known as Vans’ more risky team model, the UltraRange Pro comes out swinging with technical advances and an eye-catching colorway to boast. As a part of the new ArcAd collection, the UltraRange Pro challenges cushioning and comfort expectations in skate shoes like never before. With this new team model, Vans introduces co-molding to their already beloved UltraCush Lite formula.

For this particular colorway, you can look forward to superior grip, as translucent compounds tend to be grippier than your average white or even gum outsoles. The upper is covered with pig suede which will make for a durable flick alongside the luxliner internal construction.

Available in only 600 pairs, Vans’ UltraRange Pro can be found at selected core retailers for $90.

    Didn’t they already do a whole line of this style shoes 3 years ago and nobody wore them

      You mean the LXVI line? Or the Stage 4 line? Or the old Pro Series Line? Or the Impulse Technology line from 1998? Vans has had so many failed lines of “Their most technical team models yet.”

      LXVI was a lifestyle thing, stage 4 was a shoe with technology they still use, the Pro series was appropriate within it’s timeline, before the Rowley 1 and the rebirth of vulc. If Vans would make cup sole skate shoes with the XLT name and aesthetic, that would be cool.

    That mesh window thing on the side is so odd.

    A white and black pair are in the recent Thrasher and look amazing, but they sort of look too similar to the kyle walkers. That being said the kyle walkers are amazing skate shoes.
