Style of the Vans Paradoxxx

Dane Reynold’s retro-flavored Vans shoes capture the essence of the 90s with these smooth renditions of a blended surf and skate footwear. These kicks feature the return of the Flying V logo, which is intricately embroidered on the side panels, and vintage Off The Wall branding sewn on the tongues.

The design is so good that many consider these shoes ideal for both work and play. The dak-hued versions, especially the quiet shade/black colorway, can even double for casual Friday footwear at the office.

Notable Features

These Vans Paradoxxx sneakers keep Dane Reynolds’ carefree spirit fully reflected in the design.

The shoes are further enhanced with superlative comfort care of the UltraCush Lite sockliners that grace them. These sockliners provide excellent cushioning for the feet at a lighter weight compared to the UltraCush. Because they’re lighter and thinner, the board feel shines through.

History of the Vans Paradoxxx

The Vans Surf line was designed for surfers who need adaptable kicks that can traverse most kinds of terrain as they travel to catch the next big wave. Not just for the beach, these shoes look just as good on the city streets. 

Vans Paradoxxx Outsole

One of the most influential surfers out there is Dane Reynolds, who is also Vans Surf Team rider. He is a known pro and Surfer Hall of Famer who regularly does aerial and experimental maneuvers on his board. He helped design the Paradoxxx by infusing them with a 90s aesthetic that recalls days he spent as a youth riding the board on the streets. Of course, his surfing background has also greatly influenced the construction of the shoes.
