We know progression can come from anyone, anywhere, at any time. Its like paintingyou have an idea of what youd like to create, but when brush meets canvas, often the piece takes on a life of its own. The V66 Directed Assortment is a one-of-a-kind collection designed to capture our longstanding ties to surf culture while elevating modern function and style. With a nod to California surf roots, the V66 Era SF combines our original low profile skate shoe with the Vans Surf SF build to create an upgraded, comfortable lace-up style. Made with water-based inks and glues, the V66 Era SF also features sturdy textile uppers with an allover print, molded UltraCush sockliners for upgraded cushioning, Vulc Lite construction, and classic rubber waffle outsoles with single-wrap foxing tape for lightweight comfort.
