The Vans Berle Pro is one of Vans strongest skate shoes! Both the sole and the upperlayer will last you a long time, making them worth every penny. Like every Pro Vans they also have a rubber layer under the fabric and Duracap outersole. Shock absorption is built in to the sole, less parts, more control. Black/White colorway is never out of fashion, comes with extra set of black laces. Stability and grip are mega and it's built to last!
