For Anthony Van Engelen, “Good enough” isn’t good enough-he’s barely satisfied with great. He’d only put his name on the most uncompromising, technically advanced skate shoe we’ve ever made, so you can imagine how demanding the design process was for his signature shoe, the AVE Pro. Featuring DURACAP and RapidWeld no-sew technology combined with our LuxLiner inner linings for the optimum fit and durability, the AVE Pro is also grounded on our new UltimateWaffle construction to create the best skate shoe worthy of its name. Finally, it includes suede, textile, and synthetic uppers, and Vans’ Original Waffle Compound outsoles for superior board control. If it’s good enough for Anthony, you’re going to think it’s pretty great.

The added DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high-wear areas are engineered to withstand the abuse of the vans pro skate team—and by providing lasting durability, save everyday skateboarders time and money.
Vans LUXLINER integrates the tongue and internal lining to deliver a comfortable, breathable, and responsive fit.
This advanced stitchless upper panel welding replaces the need for conventional stitching by utilizing a thin film between panels that fuses them together when heated. RAPIDWELD’s extremely strong bond is more DURABLE, flexible, and lighter than conventional stitching.
PRO VULC LITE CONSTRUCTION
For intuitive control, 50 years of proven Vans professional vulcanized natural gum rubber outsole construction delivers the ultimate in BOARDFEEL, flex and traction.
The UltimateWaffle is clearly the perfect combination of unrivaled support, thanks to an internal shank, built-in impact cushioning, and ultimate grip.
