Vans Skateboarding unveils the latest innovation in style and performance with the Vans x Fucking Awesome UltimateWaffle EXP.

Partnering with longtime Vans family member and Fucking Awesome co-owner Anthony Van Engelen, the brand creates an experimental silhouette that utilizes a technical process called Sturdy Stitch to deliver a durable-yet-flexible upper for increased abrasion resistance and breathability.

The style leverages Sturdy Stitch, a TPU-based thread for technical embroidery, that is heat pressed to fuse into a breathable “monomesh” base. Reinforced with multiple layers across the toe cap, it protects high wear areas, as well as a singular layer around the eyestay and heelcounter.

The result? Increased abrasion resistance while maintaining breathability and flex. RapidWeld technology is then applied to provide additional structure in the mid-foot and vamp.

This new upper construction is grounded with a Vans’ UltimateWaffle outsole, which combines an UltraCush insole with a stabilizing shank to provide greater cushioning, durability, and support. Inside, you’ll find a LuxLiner sock-like interior.

Initially offered in the hero FA white and black colorway, the Vans x FA UltimateWaffle EXP features custom details including a Vans x FA molded tongue label, AVE appearing on the heelcounter and signature details on the heel tab and insole.
