Vans launched warm water surf booties and re-designed surf trunks, both of which are available on Vans.com today. Finding the perfect pair of board shorts is a necessity if you live near a body of water, or enjoy the beach. However, not much has changed, design-wise, since the shorts launched back in the early part of the 1900s. Now, shorts tend to be a quick-drying, four-way stretch and free of stitches around chafe-prone seams. The shorts have to hold up to days in the ocean and combat salt, plus look good after a day in the water. The new surf trunks from Vans feature all that and more: a fabric that feels smooth when you slide into it, no inseam, so no chafing and a trunk-lock waist strap that functions like backpack straps to loosen and tighten, plus no fly.
The skate-inspired surf booties come in a 2mm thickness, with Vans grip on the sides and toes, so you feel very grounded on any board. Vans kept its wave-like graphic on the side in the recognizable black and white pattern. There’s a molded toe cavity, perforated neoprene upper and drain holes, so your feet don’t overheat on summer days. You can shop both products online today.
