#kixspotted Vans UltraRange VR3

Just like other brands who supports the use of recycled materials to help the nature, Vans also have their own ways of doing things in the form of these products. This is not new to Vans since if I am not mistaken, they used some sort recycled canvas or materials in their kicks before. But this time around, the materials that promote sustainability can be seen all throughout the shoe. To give a proper explanation on these materials, I dug into Vans website to check out since I don't want to miss any good stuff that would make the shoe stand out. This Vans model that I've spotted at their store is called the Vans UltraRange VR3 where the upper material is made from 50% organic cotton, 36% recycled PET, and 14% recycled nylon. The cushioning in the midsole is Vans' VR3Cush which is made from at least 50% biobased EVA partially derived from plant-based sources. The rubber outsole is what they call VR3Waffle outsole. The compound is 60% regeneratively grown from natural rubber sourced from farms that utilizes practices that promote sustainability. The quality of the rubber is still durable and provides good amount of grip since Vans was able to developed a good rubber compound like this just like their normal outsoles.

Checking out the shoe, it does feel light and very light and comfy. The knit construction is very modern and you wouldn't feel it to be too "plasticky" if you get what I mean. In fact, I find it very comfortable from a quick wear. The midsole is soft and while I do not skate at all, maybe this would also pass for a lifestyle shoe or a walking shoe since it is light and breathable. Just like any Vans shoe, the floor grip is there and I think it is durable too so you can add this to your everyday rotation. The retail price of this is Php 7998 and comes in different colorways. While some might think that the price of the shoe is on the expansive side, it is not common for brands to ask for a more premium price for kicks that offers new tech since they invest money on R&D and materials. But I am pretty sure when the shoe or tech is successful and Vans decided to use the tech in other models, the cost would start to go down eventually.  What do you think guys? Is it a go or a no?
