Kyle Walker had this to say on his first shoe release...
“I wanted my shoe to be simple, but it’s funny because it didn’t come out simple at all—I made my insole way thicker, as well as the tongue, and with the Wafflecup sole, there’s a lot more cushioning in my shoe than today’s standard.” He continues, “I was going for comfort – it grips well, and it skates great right out the box. I’m happy with it, for sure.”
To celebrate the release of his first shoe, you can see Walker with a huge 50-50 thanks to a little help from Crispy the Wafflecup, in the video below. Arriving in four colour ways, the Vans Kyle Walker Pro is available now at select retailers including Slam City and Flatspot.
