The Slip-On Experimental takes slip on performance to a whole new level. Actually, you should look at it as a high impact cupsole shoe without laces that you have to replace all the time. Compared to the normal Slip-On Pro, the Experimental offers more sideways support, the stay on your feet better, the sole lasts mucht longer and the toe area is armoured with extra rubber to take a zillion ollies and kickflips. Like every Pro Vans they also have a rubber layer under the fabric and Duracap outersole. Shock absorption comes from the Waffle Control 'built into the sole' cushioning. So there's fewer parts, but no insole to take out. Downsides? They take a little more effort to get in and out of than classic Slip-Ons. Blackout colourway gives them a high stealth factor.
