Pro Skate Performance
Vans’ revolutionary WAFFLECUP construction offers today’s skateboarders the SUPPORT of a cupsole without sacrificing any of the grip and BOARDFEEL of a traditional vulcanized shoe.
The added DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high-wear areas are engineered to withstand the abuse of the Vans Pro Skate team, and by providing lasting DURABILITY, save everyday skateboarders time and money.
This past year, we've been lucky enough to see his progression first-hand from traveling with him all over the world. From winning every demo in the Midwest to shutting down any handrail put in front of him overseas, KWalks has proven he's got the tools to change the way we view skateboarding. He's a short, squat beast with quick feet and the perfect center of balance. His recent relocation to Long Beach -- and the way his frequent flyer miles are adding up from Vans filming trips -- assures us that you'll be seeing a lot more of Kyle in the near future. After witnessing his total destruction of spots in the Vans skate video, Propeller, we're honored to add him to our Vans Pro roster.
Interview with Chris Nieratko
WHAT'S THE BEST TRIP YOU'VE EVER BEEN ON?
The Thrash and Burn Spitfire trip we took to Europe for 16 days. There were so many good homies on that trip and I’d never been to a lot of the places we went to, so that was a plus.
FAVORITE VANS RIDER?
Everyone on the team, 'cause they're the shit.
WHAT TRICK CAN’T YOU DO THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD?
WHAT ARE SOME INTERESTS/HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF SKATING?
Mainly video games or taking my dog to the park or beach.
LAST GOOD BOOK YOU READ?
I can't even remember the last book I read, haha.
