If you're the kind of skater who's fairly hesitant about trying out new gear and sneakers, the Vans Rowley Pro provides the sort of classic style and performance you're familiar with. Endorsed by skate legend Geoff Rowley, the Vans Rowley Pro is a no-frills skate shoe which was originally curated in 1999 and remains a suitable option for hitting the grip tape. The Vans Rowley Pro features the Vans Original Waffle outsole, which not only provides traction but enhances board feel and control. Although the Rowley doesn't feature a traditional midsole, it's well-cushioned with a polyurethane footbed and ImpactSorb gel padding. The Vans Rowley Pro's upper is constructed of a suede and synthetic combination, to allow for both durability and breathability during long outings.
