No better time to be heading outdoors.

Spring has sprung, which means it’s time for you to stop ignoring the loudening call of nature. With the weather warming up, and there’s no excuses not to be out there enjoying the outdoors, dodging Australia’s wildlife, and unleashing a tirade of contextless Instagram stories. The old “I don’t have the right shoes” line is no longer valid now either, with Vans’ latest offering…

The UltraRange Neo VR3, modelled with precision in the gallery above by the one and only Mikey February, has landed in a big way with the vintage/multi colourway giving the kick a retro feel while still retaining those modern Vans preks – yes we’re talking about the Ultra Comfort cushioning, breathable mesh and Ultra Fit support.

It’s also been made with sustainability in mind, comprising of at least 30% recycled, renewable, and/or regenerative materials. The upper is made from regenerative leather and 100% recycled PET textiles, supporting responsible manufacturing. The VR3Cush™ midsole is eco-friendly, with at least 50% biobased EVA foam, and the VR3Waffle™ outsole uses 60% regeneratively grown natural rubber, promoting biodiversity and carbon sequestration while maintaining Vans’ trademark grip and durability.
