To herald the 35th anniversary of the iconic Vans “Jazz Stripe” – the white stripe you see on the side here – the Vans Syndicate division has revamped the two most enduring colorways of the Vans Old Skool and Sk8-Hi, putting them on the Pro Classics spec with Duracap reinforcement in high abrasion areas and co-molded PU sockliners.

Durable suede replaces canvas underlays, while moisture wicking, temperature management Dri-Lex lining delivers a functionally new take on these early Vans era styles that withstand the performance challenge set by today’s professional skateboarders.

Same look as 35 years ago, but better performance-wise. Available in classic black and navy as of September 1, 2012.
