SADDLE SID PRO
A profile originally released in ‘95, these classic black and white Saddle Sid Pro Shoes from Vans effortlessly capture skate’s colourful past with one simple, yet well-structured silhouette. With its lowered profiling and chunky rubberised sole, these suede and textile formed Saddle Sid Pros are styled with performance-focused DURACAP reinforcement trims on high-wear areas and notable stress-points, whilst the moulded UltraCush HD footbed ensures comfort is adhered to at every twist and turn. Abrasion-minded bumpers are added to the twin-piped white outsole across the heel and toe, whilst its Pro Vulc Lite construction and Waffle-Hexagon tread pattern supplies ultimate boardfeel, flexibility and traction. Contrast-coloured white stitching helps frame the midfoot and padded collar with a little more textual depth, with the 6-eyelet recessed lacing system, the bright-white metal ventilation eyelets and the well-secured flat tongue ensures customizability regardless of activity. Signing off the design, a classic circular ‘V’ logo is embroidered across the side panels and Vans’ iconic red-rubber ‘Off The Wall’ heel stamp seals the profile with the brand’s certified notoriety for quality.
Re-introduced into Vans’ ever-expanding collection in 2018 following a collaboration with Supreme, the Saddle Sid profile boasts a nostalgic aura that sets about celebrating the sport’s colourful subcultural heritage through its simplified stylings and its old-school undertones. Re-engineered to cater to the exact needs of the modern-day skate scene, the Saddle Sid Pros combine premium-materials with a more refined sense of character.
