Vans Rowan Pro

Vans Rowan Pro

First time I was introduced to Rowan was through his old Shep Dawgs crew videos, where he blew onto the skate scene with a ponytail, funky last name, and an undeniable loose-but-in-control style of skating.

Weartested Awards 2017 – Best Cushioning

Vans Ultrarange Pro CUSHIONING Cushioning was a feature of the Ultrarange Pro that went through many trials in the Vans R&D center.

Vans Ultrarange Pro

Let’s be honest here. Vans doesn’t have the reputation of putting out the most technical skate shoes in the market. Instead, the company is known for their deep-rooted history in skateboarding with Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta and the Z-boys handpicking Vans as the perfect skateboard shoe to shred in during the 70’s.
