Manila, Philippines. (January 30, 2019) – Vans joins forces with eight-time X-Games medalist and Vans Park Series veteran Tom Schaar to design a custom colorway of the brand new UltraRange Pro 2. Presented in Schaar’s custom “dress blues” hue, the UltraRange Pro 2 maintains its functional and progressive design, providing exceptional comfort, lightweight traction, and breathable construction from the ground up.
Featuring Vans’ UltraCush Lite midsole with superior impact cushioning, Vans Duracap upper reinforcement in high wear areas for unrivaled durability, and an enhanced LuxLiner sock-fit construction with seamless internals to reduce weight, rubbing and hotspots, the updated UltraRange Pro 2 provides the latest performance enhancements to provide a longer-lasting comfortable skate session for all levels.
- ULTRACUSH LITE CONSTRUCTION – Vans’ ULTRACUSH LITE low-profile foam sockliner is ultralight and anatomically contoured for quick, responsive cushioning, providing our most natural fit and ride.
- DURACAP – The added DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high-wear areas are engineered to withstand the abuse of the Vans Pro Skate team—and by providing lasting durability, and saving everyday skateboarders time and money.
- LUXLINER – Vans LUXLINER integrates the tongue and internal lining to deliver a comfortable, breathable, and responsive fit.
- VANS ORIGINAL WAFFLE COMPOUND OUTSOLE – Utilizing over 50 years of Vans’ professional vulcanized natural gum rubber compound to deliver ultimate no-slip traction and premium boardfeel.
Highlighted in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the first to successfully land a 1080, Schaar continues to prove his ranks in the contest circuit. As an Olympic hopeful, top transition skater and two-time Vans Pool Party winner, Schaar inspires the new generation of competitive skaters by pushing the boundaries of what is possible on a skateboard–a natural trait true to Vans DNA.
The UltraRange Pro 2 in Tom Schaar’s custom colorway is available in select Vans concept store this February. For more updates, visit Vans Philippines official social media accounts.
