The Vans UltraRange EXO SE is an extremely comfortable pair to don all day long. Some even appreciated that it felt comfortable right out of the box.

The inserted lightweight Vans UltraCush footbed keeps your feet cozy and consistently absorbs shock while striding.

It looks nice, but it stains

Its low-key style makes it a suitable go-to pair for almost any attire. However, it stains the socks and shoelaces after several uses.

This can hold up, so you can use this for different activities

Consistent with most Vans UltraRange models, this sneaker lasts long. After several runs, jumps, and parkour activities, a reviewer did not notice any damage to this sneaker.

Unlike its predecessor dressed in mesh, the SE version combines canvas and soft suede on its upper for a fancier look and more durable construction. Also,the added reinforced stitching on key areas boosts durability and added streamlined aesthetics.

This Vans sneaker is supportive and protective

Like the Vans UltraRange EXO, this model has an abrasion-resistant exoskeleton on the toe, heel, and medial side to provide a lock-in feel and protection. The UltraRange EXO SE holds the foot firmly and keeps it from rolling inward or outward. 

Vans UltraRange EXO SE padded collar

It also has a lightly padded tongue and collar to keep the sleek profile while providing ample protection.

Your toes will need more room

A couple of critics mention that their toes feel cramped while wearing this kick.
