Released in 1992 as a mid-top version of the Vans Caballero, the Vans Half Cab is one of the most historic skateboarding models of all time. After Steve Caballero himself noticed that skaters were cutting his signature sneaker to achieve a lower-profile, he asked Vans to create the Half Cab. The result is one of the longest-running signature models in the skate world. Still supportive despite its lower cut, the Half Cab features a premium suede upper with a padded tongue and collar for comfort. A high-grade PU footbed provides cushion on top of the classic vulcanized waffle outsole. With over 20 years in the game, the Vans Half Cab isn't just Steve Caballero's signature model; it's become synonymous with skate footwear worldwide. Try the Vans Half Cab out today for $65.
