VANS | Whip
Posted by mistercomputer
A year ago, I bought my very first Vans shoes. The Vans Whip. It’s not the ordinary skate or BMX shoe that you guys knew. This one is a signature footwear by Australian BMX Pro Rider, Ryan Guettler. I picked this shoe up not because it’s signatured or something like that, but my sister is actually the one who grabbed it for me simply because she said it’s cool enough, better than the other.
Outer appearance might be a bit owner choosy. This one features a black and white zombie printed in both of the canvas of the shoe. Most materials aside from the canvas are black suede, while an extremely little lining of black leather in each shoe.
Also, the tongue of this shoe is extremely padded making it very thick but comfortable specially when you’re wearing it and you’re riding your BMX. In front of it includes the Vans logo together with Ryan Guettler logo while behind it shows the printed phrase “Endorsed by Ryan Guettler” plus the play cards symbols.
The insides of this shoe is definitely one of the key feature of it. It is as comfortable as how you’re lying in your bed along with your pillows. Both sides are thick enough and you would expect great comfort.
The last thing is the lower part of the shoe. Just like every Vans shoes out there, this one also inherited the cone-shaped-like soles. Aside from how the thickness of the soles are total greatness, it is also equipped with a technology known as the ImpactSorb which eliminates heel bruises and offers amazing comfort everytime you skate or ride your bike.
The looks of this shoe is good enough to distinguish it away from other typical shoes, enough to differentiate it away from the Old School.
Great choice for Ryan Guettler, good match for his Colony Pro BMX model!
Before I conclude this article-slash-review, here’s a Youtube video I made featuring my Hands-On for this shoe. Hope you guys enjoy it. You can also watch it directly in Youtube by clicking here.
Overall, this shoe is a must-have. Everything in this shoe is thick enough to have an extremely good comfort, thus making it last for more years. I do not regret buying it and buy the other ones. I love the whole look of it. Especially since it lasted a year already. I wish it will last in the upcoming years.
My Rating: 9.5/10
