The Vans x Spitfire UltraRange Pro silhouette, the same as the regular Vans UltraRange Pro, is offered in medium width. But the low-top sneaker is found to run too narrow by many and may not be desirable for those with wide feet. The shoe is offered in men’s sizing from size 6 US to size 13 US with half sizes also available.
Displaying the signature Spitfire colorway, the Vans x Spitfire UltraRange Pro delivers the sporty yet stylishly casual image of the Vans UltraRange Pro silhouette. The ragged side of the low-top sneaker, which is from its skateboarding DNA, brings out its casual, street-style appeal. The silhouette delivers a fun, fashion-forward image yet also gives off the edgy vibe with its red and black colorway.
The street-style category offers a wide range of ensembles that fits thoroughly with the wearer’s mood. The Vans x Spitfire UltraRange Pro delivers versatility in style that gives the wearer an opportunity to have the freedom to be experimental with their street-inspired outfit choices.
The black and red colorway of the Vans x Spitfire UltraRange Pro embodies the whole silhouette as it is one of the factors that represent the collaboration of Vans with Spitfire Wheels. The iconic “FLAME HEAD” logo is the signature mark of Spitfire. The mesh material used on some parts of the upper is one of the things that also differentiate the silhouette from other Vans classics as it not just provides added breathability but also gives the silhouette its own identity.
The concept of the creation of the Vans UltraRange was for Vans to simply design a more technical silhouette that will be added to their line. Despite the innovation, the line will not wander off from its core character.
Targeting the line between customs and innovation led to the UltraRange’s birth. Its designer, Matt Nosbusch, said that for them to step out of what Vans has been popularly known, which is the vulcanized footwear, they had to create something new.
The new shoe, though, maybe mistakenly taken as the Vans Old Skool with its overall design. The difference between the two profiles though may be well recognized when being looked at closely as they bear different materials used for the whole shoe construction.
Being a new silhouette, Vans tested it out through giving pairs of the Vans UltraRange to their athletes. It was considered to be the brand’s most versatile shoe. Nosbusch also plans on putting more of the brand’s history into the new silhouette in the future.
The Vans UltraRange silhouette was released in 2017 along with its variety of iterations such as the UltraRange Pro which has been a part of the recent teaming up between Vans and another skate brand, SpitfireWheels.
One of the collaborative product being released as a part of the collaboration was the Vans x Spitfire UltraRange Pro which features the iconic “FLAME HEAD” logo of spitfire and displays
