Vans are essentially a sports shoe, designed to take the rough and tumble associated with aggressive skating. That fact doesn’t stop them looking darn good though. Just check out these Vans TNT II. They’ve got the classic Van shape but have apparently been "upgraded" with a new type of sole that means they’ll stand up to even more of a battering. If you’re not keen on these, then these Vans Era (£34.99) which are becoming very popular, may be more to your taste.
On a final note, if you’re a proper skate head, the Vans UK Team will be making an appearance in Brighton on 21st June (This Thursday) and they’ll be giving you the opportunity to skate with them as well as the chance to win top prizes in their Ollie comp. Check out the Vans diary for more info.
