We received another cool promo box from Vans, this time featuring Elijah Berle’s new shoe – the Berle Pro. Different from your traditional pair of Vans it features the new WaffleControl/Waffle Compound bottoms and has built-in contoured footbeds so it feels more like a cupsole. With Berle signature labels on the tongues (created by Eric Dressen) the uppers are reinforced with DuraCap, have hits of rubber on high-wear areas. Vans’ LuxLiner gives them a tighter fit when you first put them on but they’re bound to break-in nicely. Available in Rumba Red, Black/White, Black/Black and STV Navy the Berle Pro is now available worldwide for around $80.
