Vans Chima Pro 2 releasing 10th February 2018. Here's your first look and full rundown of the shoe!
Purveyor of quality canvas footwear, outstanding switch heel flips and Sydney's finest, Chima Ferguson, is a firm shop favourite and we're delighted to have another signature shoe from the man himself returning to the store.The Vans Chima Pro 2 is a continuation of Chima's masochistic love affair with lightweight canvas skate shoes. It would be natural to assume that someone with such a fondness for throwing themselves down stairs and handrails would opt for a bulkier pro model however it seems Chima's superhuman feet are able to withstand all the impact in the world. Due to this, his second pro model packs all the shock absorbing tech into the insole and allows for a stripped back and simple aesthetic which takes cues from the timeless Vans Authentic. The Vans Chima Pro 2 is the first shoe equipped with Vans Ultracush Lite 3D sockliner, a three layer insole which combines soft and hard layers of polyurethane which makes this shoe just as suitable for cruising around your favourite plaza or tanning around a mini ramp as it is for going big. Another first for Vans is implemented with the Chima Pro 2 through higher wrapped vulcanised sole which overlaps the canvas to create a subtle toe-cap improving the shoe's lifespan without adding an obnoxious frontal bumper to an otherwise understated silhouette. The shoe's upper is also backed with Vans Duracap which is perfect for canvas iterations to balance the best of both lightweight construction and and durability as seen with the Drizzle/Black/White colourway you can see above. Minimal padding in the tongue and collar, complimented by a leather lining, allows for a comfortable fit whilst retaining a slim silhouette, and as with all of Vans Pro range, the upper sits on top of a beloved Waffle sole for unparalleled grip and boardfeel with an extra vulcanised heel counter included for further support. Finally, the Vans Chima Pro 2 is topped off with decorative leather accents for the classic Vans side stripe, heel piece alongside on the tongue which features Chima's Vans insignia.
