Vans summer libe of boardies are all bright, bold colors and new Sturdy Stretch construction
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 4 May, 2015 - Cypress, California - With summer just around the corner, Vans unveiled a new range of boardshort styles featuring Sturdy Stretch. Vans’ advanced Sturdy Stretch construction makes its debut in the apparel line this season with a diverse collection of original silhouettes that showcases both performance innovation and original Vans DNA, reinforcing the Vans Surf philosophy – Classic Styles, Modern Comfort.
Vans Sturdy Stretch construction employs a versatile 4-way stretch fabrication that achieves the perfect functional balance between in-water action and out-of-water wearability. With a resilient fabric build combined with a durable stretch factor, Sturdy Stretch provides superior comfort and upgraded technical attributes for the everyday surfer.
Within the seasonal boardshort line-up, Vans Decksiders make their debut in a summer-appropriate mix of prints and solid color-ups. These water-friendly shorts of leisure present a tailored fit, shorter hem and quick-drying materials to provide an easy transition from surf to street.
The performance-driven portion of the Vans Boardshort program brings forth an array of bold, eye-catching patterns and uniquely color-blocked arrangements onto functional fabrics while emphasizing a wide offering of engineered fits and inseam options to deliver premium comfort in and out of the water.
The NF Boardshort, Vans’ newest signature silhouette, is a prime example of this design ethos. Created and wear-tested in collaboration with Vans pro surfer Nathan Fletcher, this key style is highlighted in a geometric pattern that is inspired by Fletcher’s Native American roots and is infused with Vans’ Sturdy Stretch technology to maintain its shape and functionality whether it be in the competitive circuit or casual wave riding.
