Some of our most iconic Classics have been rebuilt with purposeful choices about the materials we use. Featuring uppers made from 100% organic cotton canvas, suede, and solvent- and DMF-free polyeurethane coated split leather, the Sk8-Hi Tapered VR3 utilizes a biobased foam VR3Cush™ footbed for comfort you can feel good about and the new VR3Waffle™ outsole that uses responsibly sourced natural rubber while still maintaining the grip and durability that Vans has been known for since ’66.
Our team has set ambitious sustainability goals. Big or small, all of our efforts add up to positive change. To earn the VR3 Checkerboard globe logo, at least 30% of the product must be made up of recycled, renewable, and/or regenerative materials.
