Montreal, QC. (January 3, 2019) – Vans joins forces with eight-time X-Games medalist and Vans Park Series veteran Tom Schaar to inspire a new colorway of the UltraRange Pro 2. Presented in Schaar’s endorsed “dress blues” hue, the new UltraRange Pro 2 maintains its functional and progressive design, providing exceptional comfort, lightweight traction, and breathable construction from the ground up.
Featuring a unique chassis construction fusing Vans’ UltraCush Lite midsole to the original Vans waffle gum rubber sole, the UltraRange Pro 2 delivers upon improved lightweight cushioning, impact support and durability, combined with Vans Duracap-reinforced uppers to provide the latest performance enhancements for a longer-lasting comfortable skate session of all levels.
- LIGHTWEIGHT CUSHIONING – The UltraRange Pro 2 chassis is a unique, versatile build that integrates a custom-tuned UltraCush® Lite formula co-mold midsole bonded to Vans’ original recipe waffle gum rubber compound. The sock-fit lining components deliver lightweight support, cushioning, fit, and performance.
- DURACAP - The added DURACAP reinforcement rubber underlays in high-wear areas are engineered to withstand the abuse of the Vans Pro Skate team—and by providing lasting durability, saving everyday skateboarders time and money.
- LUXLINER - Vans LUXLINER integrates the tongue and internal lining to deliver a comfortable, breathable, and responsive fit.
- VANS ORIGINAL WAFFLE COMPOUND OUTSOLE - Utilizing over 50 years of Vans’ professional vulcanized natural gum rubber compound to deliver ultimate no-slip traction and premium boardfeel.
Highlighted in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the first to successfully land a 1080, Schaar continues to prove his ranks in the contest circuit. As an Olympic hopeful, top transition skater and two-time Vans Pool Party winner, Schaar inspires the new generation of competitive skaters by pushing the boundaries of what is possible on a skateboard–a natural trait true to Vans DNA.
