Rowley: "This shoe is definitely visually completely different from what you''ve seen in the past from me. It''s a super-lightweight vulcanized shoe. The tread is brand new on it. It''s the same waffle tread that''s on all the other Vans shoes except that it''s slimmed down. We''ve basically taken all the weight out of the rubber. There''s absolutely nothing internally in the shoe. It''s about as light and low cut as a vulcanized shoe could possibly get. It has no gimmicks. It''s the lightest, lowest, grippiest shoe that you could possibly make."
