There’s only one way to see if a skate shoe does what it says on the packaging—you gotta skate in it.
And that’s exactly what went down over the weekend, with a bunch of Vans team members including Jesse Noonan, Chris Vaughan, Bibby Bradbury and more, plus the shoe’s namesake himself, Chima Ferguson. Now we might not have the abundance of skate spots in humble Australia that some of the other skate meccas possess, but we know how to work with what we’ve got, and the newish Sydenham skate park was one such place to conduct a highly enjoyable wear test.
Every part of Sydenham skate park was utilised as the boys put the Vans Chima Pro 2 through its paces, it passed with flying colours. If you’re after a lightweight and durable shoe that’ll hold up through whatever hell you’re planning to put them through, said footwear might just be for you.
