Boy, I love doing reviews but this is something different. My family always remind me of when I even tried skateboarding at the age of 50 then fell off and nearly broke my neck. So anyway straight to the business at hand. The interesting thing I learnt was that Vans make a secret skate shoe rubber on this pair its called a 6 stick that enhanced grip and maximum durability on the skateboard.
The box comes with the vans logo like any other vans box along with a number of stickers. I would honestly say that this was the best buy for my granddaughter aged 13. I’m interested on how long the stickers stay on but I will get her to do the review on what she thinks about them

All New Skate Classics: Built Extra Tough on the Inside For Skateboarding
Completely redesigned for modern skateboarding, the all-new Skate Classics collection delivers more of what skateboarders need to enable maximum progression. And this season, we partnered with Elijah Berle to build a collection of Skate Classics that speaks to his passion for classic tattoo art, motorcycle culture, retro surf, and mid-century fashion.
The repositioned DURACAP™ reinforced underlays and fully redesigned uppers, combined with a new two-part foxing tape that features a deeper knurl pattern on the toe, make the Elijah Berle Skate Sk8-Hi Decon durable enough to withstand daily skateboarding abuse. For more board control, the new molded heel counter and internal tongue straps lock in your feet. Even the gum rubber sole that made Vans famous has been elevated with the SICKSTICK™ rubber compound to deliver more grip and boardfeel. Plus, POPCUSH™ energy return sockliners provide superior cushioning and impact protection while helping to lessen leg fatigue for longer skate sessions. Internal heel stiffeners have also been added to provide more support and stability.
The new Elijah Berle Skate Sk8-Hi Decon’s updated foxing tape, along with sturdy suede and a mix of 6 oz canvas, gives you the iconic look you want while bringing all the performance benefits skateboarders demand. And be sure to look for the new checkerboard flag on the side to guarantee that you’re getting the best in style and modern skateboarding performance.
• SKATE CLASSICS BY ELIJAH BERLE – With embellishments ranging from custom embroideries and outsole prints to detachable patches, this collection pays homage to Elijah’s elevated taste level and iconic style.
• INCREASED DURABILITY – DURACAP™ reinforced materials, deeper knurl texture on the toe bumpers, and higher sidewall heights provide a more heritage look with increased durability and protection.

• LEGENDARY GRIP – Our new, proprietary SickStickTM gum rubber compound is our stickiest rubber yet.
