Anyone skate the revamped Rowley pros? I've wanted a pair but i generally buy all my vans second hand and a lot of people around here didn't get them. I normally skate the  rowans or half cabs or slip on pros because of my big wide feet.

they are amazing. similar fit to the Rowans, except more comfortable and a little less stiff.  the pair I recently had were the navy ones and had the rapi-weld tech...not the more current all leather ones.  also, they had a thinner insole... not the super bulky Pop Cush ones, but were still comfy/cushioned enough. 



i cant find em for sale anywhere anymore. so, this post may be completely useless for your purposes.

I just got a pair of NOS Authentic Pros from one of the reseller sites and damn I can't believe how much more comfortable these are compared to the Skate version.  I haven't had a chance to try any of the other Pro vs Skate models, but Vans fucked up on the Skate Authentics.

Edit: I will say, my foot sits higher in the Pro shoe than I remember, so the heel collar feels very low and therefore  less support overall, but who's buying Authentics for their ankle support?!

I been skating those skate Half-Cabs for a while now. It wasn't the easiest switch from Sk8-Highs and Old Skools I skated for years before, as the Half-Cabs didn't really have the same board feel, especially the midsole part felt really stiff before the shoes were worn in, and that took few weeks. But after that, they've been great.

But I've been wanting to get brown half-cabs for a long time (because you know, Stranger , so I was stoked on the Reynolds Half-Cabs 92's.

Wasn't supposed to buy any shoes today, but the local shop had the Reynolds in my size, I put them on and holy shit they felt good right away.

The 92's have a bit different stitching on the top cap compared to the modern Half-Cab, which probably is bad news if your flips/ollies use that part of the shoe, but it really changes how the shoes feel for some reason. Definitely looking forward to skate these.



The "Skate" Old Schools use different material on the heel tap (some kind of faux leather instead of canvas) and fuck it will kill your achilles immediately. Almost got blisters just from walking hundred meters to get some groceries and my friends have had the exact same experience.

Just got the Reynolds one in the mail and tried it on. Last pair of half cabs I ve had were the green Ray Barbee edition which I gave up skating even though they still had quite some life in it, but they simply bagged out and felt like soft potatoes. The Reynolds one feels ten times sturdier in a good way, like an entire different shoe. They kind of remind me of the US made Vans quality wise (But I was just started skating when those were still around so I could as well be tripping there).

Yep. Comfortable, great grip, flick takes a session or two to break in.

see these on 561 the other day... is this going to be a new silhouette?? I copped a pair of the dime skate mid skools and refuse to skate them, BUT THEY LOOK PERFECT. If its the same silhouette, Id be stoked to skate em, nice toe box (bordering on the wider side) , tons of padding around ankles & stitching looks pretty promising.... Vans' take on the Blazer lol

I’m digging these, throwing off some TNT SG vibes…but their take on blazers no doubt.

Anyone skate the mid old schools yet?

I have a pair of the newest rowleys, the all leather jawns.  They’re pretty good.  I’m not a leather-shoe guy but they skate fine and are pretty well-made.

Not quite sure when the Blazer came out originally... but the Mid Skool was one of the first few designed-for-skateboarding shoes Vans did in I wanna say 1977? Same year the Old Skool came out. Shown in this old ad by it's original name, Style 37 High Top

I happened upon a preproduction salesman sample pair at a thrift store, before they were officially out, so who knows if something changed. So with that acknowledged, I absolutely loved them. They were probably the longest lasting skate shoes I've had in a decade or more. They skated great - great flip, good insoles, never tore a lace. Two-thumbs up!

Have literally never skated a pair of vans ever, but how are the wayvees? I usually skate jordan 1 lows, dunks, or new balance cupsoles (440s, 913s etc). Are they narrow or wide, do they feel supportive and stable compared to nike and new balance cups?

They're vans so they feel kinda like a marshmallow that has been melted and cooled again.

They're not going to be as supportive as any of those shoes you named (I have skated 913's and Dunks, and owned Jordan 1's as chillers). I find Wafflecup Vans to be very thin in the forefoot, and too floppy in the sole in general. I haven't had Wayvees specifically, but I have had Crockett 1's and 2's and Walker 1's.

With the updated sole on the Skate line (thicker/harder rubber and a shank in the heel), I feel like Wafflecup is kind of redundant now. It was supposed to be the more supportive middle ground between vulcs and cupsoles, but I find them less supportive than their vulcs now.
