Built on Vans PRO VULC LITE construction with an UltraCush™ Lite sockliner for reduced weight and increased responsiveness and DURACAP™-fused canvas and suede uppers that skate as tough as leather, and maybe even better
Chima Pro 2
Vans Chima Ferguson's signature Chima Pro 2 is made with sturdy canvas uppers and leather details. The UltraCush Lite 3D footbed blends the lightweight and responsive feel of the UltraCush Lite footbed with a dual-density foam, surrounded with a molded heel cup for unsurpassed cushioning, boardfeel, and support, and the Vans original waffle outsoles are made of a rubber that offers grip and support. Featuring DURACAP upper reinforcement in high wear areas for unrivaled durability, the Chima Pro 2 also includes Pro Vulc Lite construction to deliver the best in boardfeel, flex, and traction.
Pro Skate Performance
Vans’ polyurethane-based ULTRACUSH™ HD footbed keeps the foot close to the board, yet won’t pack out over time—providing our highest level of IMPACT cushioning.
The added DURACAP rubber reinforcement underlays in high-wear areas are engineered to withstand the abuse of Vans Pro Skate, and by providing lasting durability, save everyday skateboarders time and money.
"I don’t know what kind of feet Chima has, but those things are definitely not made out of flesh and bone because normal feet cannot take all that impact."
- Chris Pfanner
It’s probably natural to want to escape a remote penal colony in the middle of the ocean, especially if giant spiders and seven out of ten of the world’s deadliest creatures inhabit said colony -- or so you might think. Not so with Sydney, Australia’s finest, Chima Ferguson. While Real Skateboards’ Chima recently made his way to the States to plunder skate spots with his gnarly brand of bigger than-big, switch tech gear -- on all forms of stairs, gaps, rails, banks and ditches while filming for Vans’ first-ever feature length video -- he makes it clear that he has no plans to remain in “Seppoland.” For now, I guess we'll just have to consider ourselves lucky to have him while we can.
