Anthony Van EngelenÃ¢ÂÂs signature AV Native American Low features a mixed suede and canvas upper that utilizes Flex & Fit for durability and comfort. The Lightweight OrtholiteÃÂ® cushioning adds increased support and foothold along with Pro VulcÃ¢ÂÂ¢ construction that provides superior cushioning on Vans Original Waffle Outsole. Key Features of the Vans AV Native American Low Skate Shoes: FLEX & FIT Upper Patterning: By pulling back the contact point of the tongue's edge past the sensitive part of your foot, the shoe flexes better without interruption, making it way more COMFORTABLE. Uninterrupted flex eliminates hot spots, while the secondary construction material reinforces the ollie area to improve DURABILITY, saving everyday skateboarders money and time. ORTHOLITE Sockliner: Light, predictable cushioning and foothold, OrthoLite has antimicrobial, odor-eliminating properties for superior COMFORT. PRO VULC Construction: The Vans SKATE combination of molded polyurethane footbeds with ImpactSorb gel heel pads provides superior CUSHIONING on the board, and won't pack out during high impacts. Vans ORIGINAL WAFFLE Outsole: Back in '66, Paul van Doren made the first soles of his new shoes twice as thick so they would wear longer and, unlike other shoe manufacturers, he used pure crepe rubber with no filler. That decision ended up shaping the company when the world's first skateboarders discovered how Vans' now-famous ORIGINAL WAFFLE outsole gum rubber compound let them feel their boards while keeping them firmly connected to them.
