Vans Releases the Varix WC, Built with WaffleCup™

Vans’ New Lifestyle Silhouette Designed with Action Sports Influence


Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, introduces the Varix WC, the brand’s first ever lifestyle shoe built with Vans WaffleCup™ technology. Vans calibrates fashion, function and comfort with fashion-driven details to create the Varix WC.

Deeply rooted in skate culture, Vans looks back at its rich action sports heritage, to design the Varix WC for an authentic yet contemporary look. Setting the Varix WC apart, the design pulls direct inspiration from early 2000’s skate culture and elevates the style to reflect modern trend and function to push the boundaries of design progression.


The Varix WC applies advanced technology to include an UltraCush Lite footbed that provides a soft step and Vans’ WaffleCup™ outsole for increased durability throughout its advanced three-piece construction. Key features include a cold cement part, vulcanized midsole, toe and heel clip.


This September, The Varix WC will be offered in three colorways and available in select Vans retailers across Europe.
