Vans releases a new sneaker model made for both city and mountain
Meet the UltraRange Rapidweld
Despite its recent fashion-led collaborations (Alyx, Opening Ceremony and Enfants Riches Déprimés to name just a few), Vans' style perimeter extends beyond the shodding of the feet of the everyday hypebeast. In a return to the brand's genesis, their latest endeavour — the UltraRange — focuses on turning out shoes that aid its wearer's lifestyle needs. First came the UltraRange Pro that prides itself in its lightweight body, and their latest release (under the advisement of pro surfer Pat Gudauskas) is one equipped to tackle a selection of terrains from city pavements and beach boardwalks to mountain trails.
The wanderer constantly on their feet will appreciate the UltraRange Rapidweld's support and grip, made possible by Vans' combination of its UltraCush Lite foam cushion and waffle outsole, for the best of both worlds. Further enhancing its perfomance capabilities is a mesh, breathable upper for flexbility, and an inner sock for a closer yet comfortable fit. Not forgetting, the brand's signature house stripe that in this instance, is a promise to rise to the occassion whether you find yourself dashing for the metro or hiking 3000m above sea level.
The UltraRange Rapidweld is available online and at Vans stores.
