The Vans ComfyCush Era looks the same as the classic Vans Era sneaker for the untrained eye. But upon closer inspection, this kick has a lot more to offer. It comes with a reconstructed canvas upper that houses a one-piece internal construction.
Also, the most notable feature on this kick is the ComfyCush cushioning system, which replaced the Lite sockliner. It comes with enhanced arch support and a moisture-wicking lining that creates a more comfortable in-shoe experience.
Underneath the canvas upper is a rubber outsole with the signature waffle-tread pattern layered on top of the ComyCush insole. This made the shoe lighter and more flexible than the OG model.
Vans Era, known initially as Vans #95, was launched in 1976. Designed by famous skateboards Tony Alva and Stacy Peralta, this model, with its padded collar and eye-catching color combinations, became the shoe of choice for novice and seasoned skaters alike.
With the introduction of the Vans ComfyCush, the brand took the original silhouettes and made them even more comfortable without taking away the overall aesthetics of the shoes. The Vans ComfyCush Era, for one, now has a softer and more cushioned outsole that will make skateboarders and sneakerheads happy for a long time.
