Anthony Van Engelen came correct with his first pro-model shoe on Vans. The AV Era 1.5 is an improved version of the original, with thinner padding and a new outsole. The shoe features BoardFeel XD technology, which takes cupsole construction to the next level, replicating the grip and feel of vulcanized, but with better support and cushioning.

  • Engineered Cupsole: One-Piece Molded Construction, Durable & Stable.
  • EVA Footbed: Lightweight, Molds to the Shape of Your Foot.
  • Combination Insole Board: Shoe Flexes at the Ball of Your Foot, Heel Remains Stable.
  • Elastic Gore Tongue Straps: Keeps Tongue Centered.
  • Imported.

    overall, the era 1.5 is an amazing shoe ive been skating for 10yrs now and have had just about all the shoes in the book. I started skating vans just a couple years ago trying out all the different models, got to the era's and dont think ill be switching. They're easy to break in and very comfortable, all the colors are awesome as well. only downside is them starting to rip and fall apart after so much but what skate shoe doesnt? Just means i get to buy me a new pair! keep on keepin on vans!!

    I have skated and worn Vans since 1996 and I was severely disappointed. They are the most uncomfortable pair of sneakers I have ever worn in my life. Not only are they too small but they also feel like they are going to fall off. There is no part of the sneaker that goes over the ankle or even close to the ankle. I am a size eleven IN vans and these are nothing like any pair of vans I have ever bought. I will never buy these models again.

        These shoes are heavy and uncomfortable. I used them; therefore, I did not return them.

          Great shoes and everything I hoped for when I placed the order. I'm more of a casual wearer, rather than a serious rider, but still a great buy. Super comfortable and I really dig the alternative van style. You gotta stick with the classics, but when you look to mix it up, this is a fine option.
