The Style 36 Decon VR3 SF blends sustainability-conscious design with our surf-based Sidestripe shoe. Featuring uppers made from sustainably grown cotton canvas and responsibly sourced suede, enhanced comfort with our biobased foam VR3Cush footbed, and a new VR3Waffle outsole that uses regeneratively grown natural rubber, this deconstructed low top silhouette fuses modern and vintage detailing.
To earn the VR3 Checkerboard globe logo, at least 30% of the product must be made up of one or a combination of recycled, renewable, and/or regenerative materials.
• UPPER MATERIAL: Made with suede and canvas made with 100% US cotton from farmers using agricultural practices that can help improve a soil’s ability to absorb carbon. Vans leather products support responsible manufacturing via the Leather Working Group.
• FOOTBED: The new VR3Cush™ footbed is made using at least 25% biobased EVA foam partially derived from plants per the ASTM D6866-16 testing standard.
• OUTSOLE: All of the rubber used to make the VR3Waffle™ outsole (60% of the compound) is regeneratively grown natural rubber sourced from farms utilizing agricultural practices that are intended to promote biodiversity, enhance water cycles, improve soil health, and/or sequester carbon. This new rubber compound was developed and engineered to maintain the grip and durability Vans has been known for since ‘66.
