Vans Half Cab are Steve Caballero's second signature shoe offered from Vans in 1991. When Steve Caballero noticed that his first signature skater shoe, the Cab, was being cut in half by street skaters to create a mid-top shoe, he decided to try it for himself. Within a few months, he approached Vans with his new pitch design, and thus, the creation of the Vans style 33, or Half Cab, was born.
The Half Cab
Quality supportive style In the 90s, skaters were folding down their Sk8-His in order to achieve more ankle flex when planting their moves. As a result, Vans saw a market and adopted the DIY style to come up with the Half Cab. In 2007, the Vans Half Cab shoes were then released, delivering the same high quality style with the sturdy support that skaters had come to rely upon, but with the added benefit of flexibility. Differences between Vans Half Cab Pro and Half Cab The Half Cab and the Pro have a number of differences including the insole, the use of quality materials, and the outsole. The outsole in the Pro offers more padding, has a slightly shallower grip pattern, and has a thicker insole as compared to the normal Half Cab and other types of Vans available. The insole in the Pro can be taken out unlike in other Vans.
