ASB MAGAZINE: By tapping into high-performance technology developed for the needs of its renowned surf team, Vans is proud to release its latest take on a surf essential. The Surf Boot Hi incorporates everything the brand knows about skateboarding into a surf boot, with a focus on board-feel and grip and an unwavering commitment to progression and creative originality.
The Surf Boot Hi, developed through Vans’ unique “Off The Wall’ mentality and innovative experimentation, makes a crucial companion in chilly climates. A liquid-rubber-dipped upper delivers more resilient seams, while neoprene provides additional warmth. The boots’ gum-rubber outsole with waffle sipe – a pattern etched into ultra-thin rubber – gives an extra-sticky grip in key traction areas and allows for better board-feel.
Thin, textured rubber along the lateral and medial sides of the boot increase durability in high-abrasion areas. The Surf Boot Hi is also engineered with a heel pull, and a neoprene checkerboard-print high ankle to keep water out – a few examples of how every inch and every stitch have been crafted for comfort, performance and style. The boot is punctuated with Vans’ signature Sidestripe and heel scab.
Vans’ Surf Boot Hi is now at selected Vans Surf retailers and www.vans.com.au
