This summer, Vans introduces the EVDNT UltimateWaffle, Vans’ greatest innovation in lifestyle footwear. As the first-of-its-kind lifestyle silhouette featuring UltimateWaffle construction, this new style features a translucent outsole that combines a built-in UltraCush™ insole with an internal stabilizing shank for more cushioning and support.
The EVDNT’s sleek and tapered silhouette is stylish enough to go with anything, while its UltimateWafffle construction makes it a standout style comfortable for every occasion. A LuxLiner™ interior creates the perfect sock-like fit for a more comfortable wear throughout the day while the shoe’s breathable, knitted mesh uppers, leather overlays and rubber accent pieces deliver a unique perspective with a formed and stylish fit. Lastly, a striking translucent outsole makes a bold “what you see is what you get” statement.
To create the EVDNT UltimateWaffle, Vans leveraged decades of experience in skate shoe technology and its newly developed UltimateWaffle outsole construction to create the perfect lifestyle shoe for all-the-time wear. “The overall idea was to keep all the durability and function of a skate shoe and add the comfort and cushioning of an everyday shoe,” said Nathanial Iott, senior director of footwear design at Vans.
For the initial delivery, the EVDNT UltimateWaffle comes in a robust color scheme in shades of blue and grey—just neutral enough to be versatile, but bold enough to stand out in a crowd. An asymmetrical perforated leather vamp and flipped iteration of Vans’ iconic Sidestripe lend a unique appeal to this shoe, while the translucent outsole makes it a true showstopper. The EVDNT UltimateWaffle will be available locally at Hype, Street Gym, Archive, Xtrend, select Vans retailers, and Vans.co.za beginning June 11, 2021.
