Vans and BMX racing were synonymous in the late ’70s and throughout the ’80s. With the natural progression of BMX racing and downhill mountain bike racing now demanding specific footwear, the designers at Vans created a shoe that meets the technical needs for both disciplines. Rounding up the best riders in BMX racing and mountain biking to help us develop and test our product, we created a shoe loaded with function and style.
Vans’ Warner is the first choice in style, comfort, and performance for SPD compatible shoes for today’s BMX racers and mountain bikers alike. The Warner utilizes our lightweight gum rubber “Off the Wall” tread pattern molded to our performance driven SPD compatible outsole. We’ve internally relieved material from key points on the SPD compatible plate to keep it light yet stiff over the mid foot area while providing flex in other key areas. The upper infuses a blend of weather resistant synthetic leathers and vented ballistic nylon mesh with a removable hook and loop adjustable tension strap. Our self centering gored tongue keeps debris out of the shoe while the molded EVA foam sock liner ensures that your feet stay comfortable and supported all day.
These shoes were available initially only on the Vans online shop, now you can touch with your hands in the best stores like Mud and Snow.
