First Glance: Vans Cab Lite

This skate shoe essential has seen every kind of change & collaboration possible & it keeps getting better with this latest rendition. After 20 years, the Half Cab is now enduring another change reminiscent of its original cutting of the collar. It's now slimmer, lighter and equally as flexible. This take on the legendary shoe is called the "Cab Lite" & it's everything you'd think & more.

If you were ever committed to Half Cabs before, this new slimmed down version is going to re-ignite your love for the shoe even more. The Cab Lite has some obvious differences than its forerunner but it still stays true in its silhouette and outsole design. The main differences that you should be looking forward to are the one piece suede toe cap over the traditional paneled toe and its newly slimmed design. Comparatively, it's night and day between the two shoes. The Cab Lite really is light as hell and you'll immediately feel the difference.

The Cab Lite's are already going through the review process.
We'll have more than enough info on them to come.

For now though, just know the following:
  •  When walking in them, you'll feel the awesome-ness of the waffle sole. They feel as though they're broken-in just because of how comfortable it feels. Once you step on the board, that all changes. It'll take some more break-in time for the suede and additional fabric to break-in.
  • They feel great in a half size smaller. Every now and then, the Cab Lite will feel snug but overall will stretch over time.
Expect for the review to be out soon.
