Surf Boot Hi
Everything We Know About Skateboarding, In A Surf Boot
By tapping into high-performance technology developed for the needs of our renowned surf team, Vans is proud to release our latest take on a surf essential. The Surf Boot Hi incorporates everything the brand knows about skateboarding into a surf boot, with a focus on board-feel and grip and an unwavering commitment to progression and creative originality.
The Surf Boot Hi makes a crucial companion in chilly climates. A liquid-rubber-dipped upper delivers more resilient seams, while neoprene provides additional warmth. The booties’ gum-rubber outsole with waffle sipe – a pattern etched into ultra-thin rubber - gives an extra-sticky grip in key traction areas and allows for better board-feel.
Thin, textured rubber along the lateral and medial sides of the bootie increase durability in high-abrasion areas. The Surf Boot Hi is also engineered with a heel pull, and a neoprene checkerboard-print high ankle to keep water out - a few examples of how every inch and every stitch have been crafted for comfort, performance and style. The boot is punctuated with Vans’ signature Sidestripe and heel scab.
