The Vans Ludlow shoes feature a wide mouth, low profile design that lets you rock them as a slip on casual or skate shoe, while the eyelets let you cinch them tight when need be. The slim cupsole doesn't sacrifice an ounce of boardfeel, so you don't even notice the trim cushion of the shock absorbent insole, but that doesn't mean it isn't working, just that you're so comfortable the whole world has fallen away. It's just you and your board now.
