Nike doesn’t own vans. Maybe you’re thinking about converse?

They're not being called golf shoes. Creative golfers have just found another use for them.

Hell, I’m a sucker for all white golf shoes and these definitely qualify as all white.  May need to scotchguard them. Or at least waterproof spray them.  At $35 I may as well try them out.  Sounds like the comfort is there.

Interesting you see it that way. I too used to skate and love golf. I see it as a chance to wear a brand I love to do something I love. FYI, these shoes aren't being touted by Vans as golf shoes at all. They were designed as all terrain surf shoes to help surfers get comfortably and safely to hidden surf spots. We just happen to find them equally as functional as really rad golf shoes..

Vans was bought in I think 2004. Nothing changed as far as the product is concerned. The focus was to bring the brand to broad retail more than in small skate stores.

I would say that the forefoot padding is excellent with a very forgiving and cushy midsole.. similar to a running/walking shoe.. but like the OG Vans, they have very little heal to toe drop and lateral support is great. If you're a walker, these would be an excellent option.. oh.. and they're ridiculously light!

I've had 3 pairs of Adidas Adicross shoes and I've really enjoyed each pair but I think the Vans Ultrarange may outperform them in the comfort area. Grip is just as good and they are about 1/3 the weight.

I'm really glad to have found this thread... Stopped by the Vans store in the mall to try them out.  Super comfortable and I think they'll have plenty of grip on dry days, similar to most spikeless "golf" shoes.  Probably not the best choice for a rainy day.  I do plan on spraying them with waterproofer for early morning rounds.

oh man those all black are the business! I got the black and white and grey and white.. If the Mrs didn't put her foot down on buying more Vans I'd probably be on my way to Vans already for a black pair. :P

I'm case you missed my earlier post, I've actually had a full rain round and quite a few early morning dew rounds with my feet left dry as a bone. Not sure if I just did a good job staying out of the water or if Vans has some kind of voodoo magic spell that they put on their shoes.. And that's without any waterproofing.

Please do share your results of their water resistance because I'm still considering some scotchgard.

The footbed isn't removable. I wear orthotic insoles so i had to go 1/2 a size up to get a proper fit
