Launching worldwide this Saturday, February 11, Vans reveals the latest breakthrough in performance skate footwear to introduce the second signature pro model from Vans team rider, Gilbert Crockett. Unlike any other, the all-new Crockett Pro 2 is a union of craft and science, upholding Vans’ revolutionary Wafflecup bottom unit construction, improved fit, and fully-fused Duracap upper reinforcements.
The new Crockett Pro 2 model introduces a new outsole that utilizes the performance advancements of Vans Wafflecup technology, providing the premium support and unrivaled grip demanded by skateboarders everywhere. Gilbert’s second edition highlights new blind-seam suede overlays on the toe cap, maximizing Vans’ Duracap reinforcement capabilities while employing Vans’ proven Ultracush HD drop-in sockliners for the highest level of impact cushioning.
