The Vans Classic Half Cab skate shoes are for working out that fakie 180 ollie until you can plant it better than its creator, Steve Caballero. Even if you can't, at least you can look as good on the board with Steve's shoe, the Classic Half Cab from Vans. Back in the 90's, skaters were wrapping down Sk8-Hi's themselves for more ankle flex. Vans adopted that DIY style and released the Half Cab to offer you the same sturdy support of a high cut, but with the flexibility of low profile kicks.
