Vans AVE Pro - the signature skate shoe from Anthony Van Engelen
With the Vans AVE Pro, Vans launched a technical skate shoe that meet all requirements. For Anthony Van Engelen, "good" is not good enough so he only puts his name on the most uncompromising skate shoes. With lots of technical features, Vans focuses on maximum comfort and durability.
AVE Pro - the Vans all-round talent
The silhouette of the Vans AVE Pro clearly goes in a more futuristic direction than other Vans skate shoes. The material mix of premium suede, functional textiles and mesh inserts, as well as the skilfully placed details give it a clean look that allows hints of the technical details.
The Vans AVE Pro is true to size, so you can buy it online in your usual size in the skatedeluxe skate shop. Thanks to the LuxLiner and padded heel area, there is no break-in phase. The new Vans AVE Pro is an absolute all-round talent and exactly the right shoe for everyone who is looking for a skate shoe with long durability and strong performance.
The Vans technologies in the Vans AVE Pro
The first cup sole model with AVE’s name since switching from DC Shoes to Vans in 2005 relies on the new Vans UltimateWaffle sole. This sole has a built-in shaft and provides the right level of cushioning, boardfeel, grip and flexibility. Additional cushioning is guaranteed by the proven Vans ULTRACUSH footbed. The LuxLiner technology promises an optimal fit.
In terms of durability, the AVE Pro also relies on DURACAP reinforcements in the most demanded areas and uses the RapidWeld process to join individual pieces of the upper material using heat instead of seams. Because where there are no seams, they cannot tear. The Vans AVE Pro is packed with the best technology Vans has to offer! You can find out how the Vans Ave Pro performs in practice in our Wear Test.

Away from the board, AVE created with HOCKEY a unique skateboard company and leads it in a way he thinks is best. With a fabulous team and brutal designs, he creates a creative output like no other skateboard brand at the moment.
