Specifically designed with BMX in mind. There are more women in BMX than ever before, and playing a huge role in that is Angie Marino. Leading the charge in the emerging days of women’s freestyle, Angie has doubled as both an inspiration to get girls on bikes and a spokesperson to get a women’s class added to events around the world. Featuring the unique style that made Angie a consistent podium finisher on both the Vans BMX Pro Cup series and FISE events, the Angie Marino BMX Sk8-Hi comes equipped with the iconic Vans-style upper, DURACAP™ reinforcement, and the WAFFLECUP™ BMX construction for maximum pedalfeel and durability. Incorporating soft neutral colors inspired by the protea flower, this high top BMX shoe also features sturdy suede and 10 oz canvas uppers, supportive padded collars, and Vans original waffle outsoles made of a rubber that offers grip and support. VANS WAFFLECUP BMX CONSTRUCTION - A first of its kind in BMX, specifically designed to deliver the best combination of pedalfeel, support, and durability. UNRIVALED DURABILITY - Reinforced DURACAP™ underlays in high-wear areas add unrivaled durability to prolong the life of each shoe. POPCUSH CUSHIONING - Our best cushioning and impact protection. POPCUSH™ energy return footbeds protect your feet while helping to lessen leg fatigue for longer skate sessions. CLASSIC GUM RUBBER GRIP - The Van Doren™ Gum Rubber Compound, made of a rubber that offers grip and support, is what attracted BMXers to Vans in the first place. This is the Sole of BMX.
