Contemporary take on a timeless mid-top.
The Vans Secant blends heritage chukka boot styling quos with modern construction & details to create a modernized classic look with all-day athletic comfort.
LXVI's proprietary fit that features a higher heel height to mimic the fit of running shoes, while maintaining a balanced feel. This allows for more heel cushioning and also puts the user onto the ball of the foot which gives a much more "lively" feel to the shoe.
Our proprietary cushioning system that refers to any outsole, midsole, or footbed that use lightweight comfortable foams to support and cushion the foot. We utilize custom versions of EVA and open cell foam in a variety of constructions and applications developed over 45 plus years of making footwear.
Vans modernized tread design is turned on an angle to create lateral flex grooves across the foot, which promotes anatomical movement. The tread blocks have also been spaced apart with recessed centers to reduce weight and increase flexibility.
Vans proprietary heel and collar construction that uses a lycra coated neoprene cuff that is wrapped around a soft layer of open cell foam at its core for superior comfort and heel support.
