Who should buy Vans Old Skool Lite
The Vans Old Skool Lite is a great choice if you are looking for:
- low top sneakers that would suffice with pants, shorts, leggings, dresses, and many more outfit combinations, even with smart casual wear on certain occasions
- the classic waffle-pattern look of Old Skool shoes updated into a full white sole with all the upper detailing of the original Old Skools
The sneaker's comfort is exemplified by the UltraCush Lite footbed, which is a custom foam that brings forth supreme comfort and protection in a lighter material.
The construction of the shoe is also modified to align with the lightweight bearing of the silhouette.
History of Vans Old Skool Lite
The Old Skool Lite, released in 2015, features a new shoe construction to increase flexibility and comfort and decrease the classic model's overall weight. It is also coupled with an UltraCush foam which adds to the lightweight sensation on every stride.
Though the Vans Old Skool Lite was released in 2015, it had not yet achieved its mainstream fame until the following year. The iconic black with White Side Stripe was one of the very first versions to be released which brings in a contemporary twist to the retro colorway. Another addition to the little upgrade is its almost weightless feel which is three times lighter than a traditional sole.
These Old Skool Lite Vans also come in a nubuck rendition with brilliantly designed tonal uppers. The seasonal pack was released in October of 2016 in a selection of muted colors including brown, navy, and a Vans Old Skool Lite grey hue. The collection was launched under the Vans Vault subsidiary of the global Cali-based brand.
