For many of us, summer time means it’s time to stock up on casual kicks. Vans has been at the top of the casual skate shoe game for years, and this summer they’re looking to maintain that position with some new designs.

The Vans 106 Vulcanized is the perfect mix of a shoe that you just want to kick around in relaxing, and a shoe that you can skate in. The classic Vans waffle sole in its vulcanized form provides extra grip and board control. The smooth toebox design keeps things looking fresh whether tucked under jeans or worn with that new pair of boardshorts you picked up for the beach. A padded collar and padded footbed provide the comfort whether you are kick-pushin’ or just out for a casual stroll. These two new colorways come with faint pinstripes to give the Vans 106 Vulcanized some extra style for the summer.
