Here’s an excellent novelty product from Vans. Drawing on their age-old waffle sole, the California skate label has produced a run of rubber coasters embossed with the trademark grip seen on most Vans footwear. The coasters come in circular or square shapes, similar to the most commonly available waffles (yes, we mean the breakfast food.) They worked well to protect a weathered ledge from our Tecate on a rainy Cinco de Mayo. You may find some at the Vans by OTH Shop.
