Vans Slip-On CAP History

The Slip-On Cap is another revolutionary shoe that Vans has offered to its loyal followers. It showcases a deconstructed look compared to its heritage silhouette.

Instead of the straightforward design with an elasticized goring, this model has an added laces that are borrowed from the Old Skool and SK8-Hi silhouette. It still maintains a rubber outsole with a waffle tread pattern that undoubtedly provides a sticky grip, perfect for skating and BMX riding. Also, it has a head-turning and versatile design that can jazz up a variety of casual outfits. 

But do you wonder when the Vans Slip-On started before countless iterations were released? It was initially launched in 1978. Back then, it was known as the Style 98. It was offered to provide a functional shoe without the fuss of shoelaces. 

Since then, it became an instant fit in Southern California with the help of skateboarders and BMX riders. Through time, it has proven that it is not only a functional shoe but also a staple of a fashionable style. Eventually, it has been appreciated by men and women of past and present generations.
