Designed with added durability, support, and cushioning for BMXers who share Ty’s powerful approach to riding, the Ty Morrow Old Skool Pro BMX is the first Old Skool with toe-cap construction. The new style features DURACAP-reinforced rubber underlays in high wear areas for unrivaled longevity and UltraCush HD sockliners to provide the highest and longest lasting level of impact cushioning available. Adding to this is the Wafflecup BMX outsole, BMX's first-ever vulcanized cupsole built with a rigid ex-pattern and herringbone outsole underlay designed to extend the life of Van’s classic gum rubber compound, improve grip and control, and solve the perennial problem of having to choose between support and pedal feel.
“The gum sole works perfect with the BMX WaffleCup functionality,” Morrow adds of the unique colorway. “Every BMXer loves a good gum sole and the added toe-cap support makes the shoe an even better choice.”
Part of the Vans team for 12 years, Florida-born, California-based Ty is a pioneer in the world of modern-day street riding with a style that mixes technical moves with raw energy and power like no other rider can. Like his minimalist take on the classic Old Skool Pro BMX, Ty lets his riding do the talking for him—and as his ground-breaking video parts, X-Games silver medal, and Ride BMX’s 2016 Web Video Part of the Year award proves, there’s plenty to say.
