Taco Shoesday Vans Syndicate Chukka Low S Shoe!


We all know Taco Tuesday is thee day to head out to your favorite taco place and chow down on some tasty tacos for a really cheap price.   Well for Taco Shoesday we’ll be reviewing and taco-bout shoes from Nike SB, Vans, Adidas to Supra, Gravis and many more.

This week we’re starting it off with the Vans Syndicate Chukka Low S Ballistic shoeVans Syndicate is a limited skateboard footwear collection. The style is based on classic Vans-models, but the materials, innersole and execution is always modified for better skate performance. Collections are released every year, and Vans has collaborated with artists/designers such as Mr. Cartoon, W-Taps, Neckface amongst others to bring their own style to Syndicate.

The Vans Chukka Low S Shoe is just like any other Chukka low, except it’s slimmed down just a bit with some added details and finishes.   The cool part about this shoe is that the exterior is protected by a Ballistic nylon that makes this shoe extra tough and durable.   It has a water repellent tongue, reinforced detailing, and a Syndicate “S” Syndicate logo at the back heel.  The exterior seems bullet-proof, but it isn’t too heavy.   You can’t beat the price for what this shoe has to offer.  Priced at $69.99 they’re available at Activerideshop.com

Vans Era Pro Shoe


Vans introduced the concept of upgrading their classic shoe models in Syndicate and Legends lines a few years back. The idea was to tweak a classic shoe by adding slight padding and minimal reinforcement to offer better skate performance. The team loved the shoes and soon began requesting the new insoles to wear in their classics. It only made sense to begin releasing upgraded “Classics” as “Pro Classics” in Vans regular rotation such as the Half Cab Pro and now the Era Pro.

The Vans Era Pro is essentially an Era with a bit more padding in the tongue and side panels, a performance foot bed, a re-enforced “duracap” vulc toe cap and an upgraded “tuff tech” suede upper. It offers increased durability and performance while staying lightweight and flexible. And of course it’s got that secret formulated waffle grip!

I highly recommend you pick a pair of these up today. They are built to skate and the colorways are the best. Also, check out the limited Spitfire X Vans Era Pro Colab here, can’t go wrong!
