Vans Skateboarding has teamed up with longtime Vans team rider and Fucking Awesome co-founder Anthony Van Engelen (aka AVE) to create the UltimateWaffle EXP, the latest innovation in skate shoe style and performance.

This new, experimental silhouette features a technical process called SturdyStitch to deliver a durable-yet-flexible upper for increased abrasion resistance and breathability. TPU-based thread is heat pressed to fuse into a breathable monomesh base, reinforced with multiple layers across the toe cap and other high wear areas. RapidWeld technology is then applied to provide additional structure in the mid-foot and vamp.

Underfoot is a translucent UltimateWaffle outsole, combined with an UltraCush insole with an internal stabilizing shank for more cushioning, durability, and support. FA World Entertainment branding appears on the tongue, with additional Fucking Awesome branding on the heelscab and insole. Anthony Van Engelen’s initials dress the heel ribbon. The shoe makes its debut in a white colorway, though a black-based colorway is also on the horizon.

The Fucking Awesome x Vans UltimateWaffle EXP launches on December 9th on vans.com, the Fucking Awesome website, and select skate shops worldwide.
