VANS reinvents the classic Old Skool model with ComfyCush technology. The tried and true design remains, but the new ComfyCush sole with waffle tread offers much greater comfort than the previous model. The heel area is supported by soft padding and the new sole cushions every step. The upper of the shoe remains sturdy canvas with suede accents, and the VANS patch on the heel completes the design very well visually. If you like the classic silhouette but don't want to sacrifice comfort, you'll do everything right with the new ComfyCush Old Skool.
