Vans Pro Skate celebrates iconic pro kkater Anthony Van Engelen’s influential career with new signature footwear and apparel collection
In honor of longtime Vans global team rider Anthony Van Engelen’s storied career and enduring impact on skateboarding culture, Vans presents a brand-new footwear and apparel collection designed and inspired by the skate icon himself. Available worldwide from August 22, Vans unveils the AVE Pro featuring Vans’ UltimateWaffle, Van Engelen’s first signature cupsole silhouette in over a decade.
“With the AVE Pro – my first cupsole in 15 years – we achieved a completely transformed upper with Vans’ Rapidweld technology and improved the grip and boardfeel in the sole overall,” Van Engelen said. “This shoe for me was a natural progression toward making a durable, technical skate shoe. Not only does it deliver a lighter, longer lasting shoe for skating but it’s an important step in innovation for Vans to pursue as the leader in skate shoes.”
For AVE, “good enough” isn’t good enough, so he worked with the Vans design team every step of the way, through innovative research, design and wear testing to create a shoe worthy of his name. Featured in premium suede with mesh paneling, the all-new AVE Pro is enhanced with Duracap™ reinforced underlays in high abrasion areas and RapidWeld™ no-sew technology that utilizes heat-fused upper panels for an extremely strong bond that’s more durable, flexible, and lighter than conventional stitching.
The pro model also features LuxLiner™ technology, integrating the tongue and internal lining for a more snug and consistent fit, along with a molded heel counter for additional structure and heel lock. The best feature lies in Vans’ all-new UltimateWaffle outsole featuring an internal shank to keep flex in the forefoot, built-in impact cushioning with a full length Ultracush midsole, and unrivaled grip to present a shoe that has a familiar Vans feel and flexibility with the comfort and protection of a modern construction.
“The AVE Pro is the culmination of upper features that have worked for Anthony on previous shoes with a new sole that shows off everything inside and keeps the flexibility intact with Vans’ durable waffle tread.” – Neal Shoemaker, Director of Footwear Design
AVE embodies what it means to be a modern skater.
His distinct style is legendarily aggressive and hard-hitting, yet technical and progressive. It’s what makes him an icon, and a leading Vans Signature Pro. Throughout his 14-year career with Vans Anthony has continued to innovate and push the progression of both skateboarding and skate shoe design, introducing a number of progressive technologies with each new signature model while skating faster and harder than ever year after year.
