Vans Chima Pro

Posted on

One of our best selling shoes in the Vans range is the pro shoe of Australian power house Chima Ferguson. We have received a new Vans delivery and three new models are going to hit the shelves this weekend…

He’s gone for two classic colourways and a slightly wilder one. First up is the Black / White / Tan. This shoe has a black canvas upper but for added durability has a suede toe and is off set with a Vans leather tongue and side tab. Second is the Washed Grey which has a washed canvas upper. Our final new arrival is the Hawaiian blue which features a printed canvas upper contrasting with a white sole unit. It’s no secret that this shoe was inspired by the Vans Authentic. In an interview Chima Ferguson says this about the shoe “The Authentic is the original skate shoe and skate shoes have changed a lot and the technology has as well so it’s the closest you can come to having the most simple skate shoe. I don’t like anything on my shoes. I don’t want too much on what I wear. I like to keep it simple and I like my shoes to be thin but also have a lot of protection. So this is the best of both worlds” As far as protection goes all of these shoes feature Molded polyurethane footbeds with ImpactSorb gel heel pads and Ultracush Lite foam footbeds for reduced weight and improved responsiveness as well as incorporating Duracap technology. As well as these three new shoes we also have stock of the Vans Syndicate Chima Ferguson Pro Lite Grey. All of these shoes are avilable online and from our Vans basement this weekend. Here is another edit with some good Chima footage and a bit more info about his shoe.
