All the new ones don't seem to be anywhere near as expensive as the first ones released, so they might have had second thoughts on trying to hike them up that much, or someone realised they would sell many more at more reasonable prices.


Any of you happy campers seen this too?

Newly added stronger piece of something from the heel to the arch looks good for stopping primo pain or other injuries.

Vans Authentics are paying 50-60$ for guaranteed heel blisters

It is in all the new line of shoes, the added stonger heel piece under the footbed in the sole of the shoe.

Apparently you can just see it in the right light.
I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Just to make clear, they are replacing and not releasing these along the pros.

Right - the Skate line replaces the Pro line. Here's a pic from Lotties to compare:

compared to the now old "Pros"

Damn, that checkered label really is atrocious.

What are the different uses that justify making a Half-Cab pro and a Half-Cab classic that are so drastically different that people consistently avoid or complain about one of the other?
[close]
Just to make clear, they are replacing and not releasing these along the pros. So the "different uses" point won't matter since they will be phasing out the pro line.
[close]

So they are doing the Repeal and Replace that Trump claimed but never made good on??

Also, to make clear, Vans does indeed have at least one other version of the Half Cab, the Classic. Which is like their casual one not optimized for modern skateboarding. I don't see what's bad about having both.

Oyolar, are you also pissed at Nike then? In recent years Nike has had like 6+ different builds of things like the Blazer Low... Nike Sportswear Blazer Low (direct parallel to Vans Classic), Nike Blazer Low '77 (truest to 1970's build, like Vans Vault), Nike SB Zoom Blazer Low (shape is TOTALLY different, panels are altered, but made better for skating), Nike SB GT Blazer, and now even the Nike SB GT Blazer Low Pro, on top of some fashion-specific alterations like Virgil's versions and stuff. Long story short, brands iterate and reiterate on their franchise models.

[close]

I mean, yeah. I also think that's stupid. But notice how only three of those Blazers are SBs? Those are the only ones I actually give a shit thinking about so the fact that Nike has a bunch of other ones for different verticals (tennis, basketball, fashion, etc.) doesn't mean anything to me.

Last I checked on the Vans website this morning, they only have 1 skate specific version (SB tangent) of their iconic models of shoes. Skate Old Skool, Skate Half Cab, etc. The Pro line, as discussed heavily, is gone. So your point about 3 SB Blazers is kinda moot... Nike has more duplicity in even their specific skate line by your metric. The other Vans Old Skools and Authentics and stuff in the line are for different verticals (fashion, casual, etc) and shouldn't mean anything to you either.

so what's the deal with that weird glossy sole on the new Vans? Looks like the white ones also have it?
[close]

I think someone posted about it somewhere on here, that it doesn't discolor or pick up dirt as much at the old ones did. That is what I remember being posted, anyway.

took a shot in the dark and asked the Vans insta and they responded with this:

"just a throwback nod to our old Anaheim designs. There will be options without glossy soles too."

That checkered label makes them look like some third tier mall shop Vans. It just looks bad. The red label on the pro's made them look like a better quality model. The old skool pro's just looked right.

Just ordered that new Gonz color way. Pretty hyped for them to arrive. Reminds me of an old Reynolds 1 color way I had.

For all you not feeling the checkered flag

But I feel you. I feel like anybody who really wants the upgraded skate versions are able to look for the pop cush or literally just read the word "skate" before ordering online. The flag may be more for clueless staff to be able to differentiate the product they are selling.

These are supposed to be like, Jordans/Dunks - do those shoes have a narrow sole? The sole they used on the Telford is the same as some Manchester's I got in the last year, and they were so narrow I had to get rid of them. Seems like an odd sole for the Telford, but maybe it will feel better with a roomier shoe.

I tried them on when the Black Sabbath ones released and they definitely felt pretty narrow and I have a narrow foot. They felt weirdly pointy too. I hated it and didnít even consider buying them

I have a kind of narrow foot too so I was really surprised the Manchester's were too skinny. My feet were aching for a day and a half after wearing them for a couple hours. I ended up trying the Carroll's and even at half a size up they're super tight. Lakai is junk. Bums me out to say it because I'm a fan of Howard and Carroll but I've never tried on a pair of Lakai's that feel good.

So, usually when you use the same outsole from a previous shoe you need to use the same last that the old shoe used. You canít change to a roomier last (or at least you shouldnít) and keep the same tooling. The last is what gives shape to the shoe, so if you had a narrow shoe with that tooling before, most likely the next oneís gonna be narrow too. (I guess you can also tweak a bit the pattern to get some room, but thereís so much you can do)...

That's exactly what I figured but I guess I was trying to be optimistic, lol. I don't even like that style of shoe the Telford is going for so it doesn't matter. Just remembered that same sole was on the Manchester and seemed like a really weird fit for a Dunk/Jordan rip off.

Can confirm the telfords are a bit narrow. My feet are average width, maybe slightly narrow and they are definitely snug widthwise. I am slightly disappointed in these, really wish they used a more traditional cupsole. However, as far as shoes made for skateboarding go, this is my favorite shoe currently. Those nb 440 mids were too low profile for me. I honestly think I'm going to end up skating in mostly non skate shoes for the rest of my life. Reebok high tops and cheap, lightly used jordan 1s when I can get them on eBay
