Vans’ Classic Checkerboard Slip-On is BMX Pro Scotty Cranmer’s Go-To

By Staff  |  06/06/2018

The iconic Vans checkerboard Slip-On Pro has been updated with all-new technology from the sneaker brand, and has become the go-to for BMX team rider Scotty Cranmer.

Featured as part of the Pro Classics collection, the checkerboard Slip-On Pro is upgraded with Vans' Duracap functionality, UltraCush HD cushioning, and the ionic waffle outsoles, which is cherished by BMX riders worldwide.

Duracap offers elevated durability. Constructed with reinforced rubber underlays in high-abrasion areas, it helps provide long-lasting durability that’s able to withstand the abuse of the Vans global BMX team. Vans’ polyurethane-based Ultracush HD footbeds keep the foot close to the pedal and provide the highest level of impact cushioning. And finally, the original Vans waffle outsole has been a highlight on the brand's sneakers for over 50 years -- the vulcanized natural gum rubber compound delivers ultimate no-slip traction and premium pedal feel.

Cranmer is one of BMX's most revered pros. He's currently tied at 9th for the most X-Games BMX park medals, owner of a skate park and a bike shop in his home town, and host to over one million subscribers on his YouTube channel.

The Vans checkerboard Slip-On Pro is available online and in-stores now.
