Vans Encore


The Vans Encore is back and looking good with its blend of skate style, high tech performance and classic Vans BOA closure system. This season the Encore features the new Trifit Asym-X thermal liner and internal web harness for even more support and control, while its Pro-Flex Snowaffle Air Sole and EVA footbed provide plenty of comfort and cush for all day use and abuse. Designed for the everyday rider, the soft flexing Encore gives you a blend of freedom and support for use wherever you choose to ride.

Trifit Asym-X Thermal Liner: Features Van's new heel-holding tech, a closed seam brushed fleece upper cuff, open cell foam interior for cushioning, a low volume sole, dual density EVA core, comfort flex toe box and centre tongue construction.
Pro-Flex Snowaffle Air Sole: Gradually decreased stiffness from heel to toe maximises turning response, the inverted waffle lug pattern and Vans secret rubber blend recipe provides traction in all conditions, the 3/4 wrap heelclip stabilizes the foot and increases torsional rigidity to prevent twist and enhance turn response, and a moulded PU midsole with airbag gives durability and impact absorption.
EVA: Ethylene Vinyl Acetate, a polymer used to absorb physical shock. Used in athletic materials.

Price: £140
