About Vans Half Cab
Originally released as a mid-top version of skateboarding’s first-ever signature pro model shoe, the classic Vans Caballero high top, the Half Cab was created in direct response to the demands of a new generation of skateboarders changing the game and taking skateboarding back out into the streets after the vert-riding heyday of the 1980s. “In ’91, I noticed that a lot of street skaters were cutting my shoe halfway down and wearing them that way,” Steve Caballero remembers. “So in ’92, I gave Vans the idea to make a lower cut shoe and call it the Half Cab.” Vans listened and a new silhouette was introduced; an icon was born and countless other shoe companies would eventually go on to release their version of this original Vans classic that has remained in Vans’ footwear line-up to this day, making the Half Cab the longest running, continuously produced signature skate shoe of all time.
