Vans UltraRange Franchise Introduces New Alternative Closure Designs

Celebrating a year of modern innovation in market, the Vans UltraRange franchise sustains its reputation as Vans’ most progressive line to date. Expanding this fall, the UltraRange assortment brings two new styles on the road, the UltraRange AC and the UltraRange Gore, forging a new path of progression with alternative closure features. Designed for all terrains, the UltraRange provides elevated comfort to inspire limitless adventures worldwide.

Grounded on the franchise’s signature co-molded midsole, which blends UltraCush™ Lite foam cushioning with Vans’ original waffle rubber compound, the UltraRange family introduces the UltraRange AC and the UltraRange Gore – two innovative silhouettes with a modern fit and feel. 



The UltraRange AC is vamped with a seamless, one-piece Rapidweld upper, featuring a slim collar opening, synthetic suede and knit uppers, and a sock-fit Luxliner construction. The UltraRange AC provides a closer focus on the foot, to create a faster-reacting, comfortable shoe.

The UltraRange Gore is an attractive rendition of athletic styling. Utilizing neoprene gore straps as the primary upper, the UltraRange Gore modernizes the look and feel of the original, while keeping the function of sock-fit construction and lightweight cushioning pristine. With an easy collar entry and soft gore textiles to keep the fit tight, the UltraRange Gore maintains shape and makes on-the-go travel effortless.

The two new styles accompany the original silhouette, the UltraRange Rapidweld, which has exemplified the style’s modern shape, and features an updated UltraCush midsole that provides more cushioning with a molded construction across the heel and toe, fused together with our legendary waffle rubber and the superior reverse lug grip you have come to expect. 


Available now, the Vans UltraRange collection embraces a life of exploration, enabling creative pursuits from all corners of the globe to inspire you to get there—new cities, new spots, new unknowns. Visit to learn more.
