Skate style meets sartorial sensibility in the Vans Chauffeur SF Shoe for men. Inspired by a classic boat shoe design, the Chauffeur SF is a notch above the regular skate sneakers by upping its style factor, while still sticking to what makes Vans shoes so iconic. From skate alleys to high street, the Vans Chauffeur SF refinement and subtle flair will see you through effortlessly and with panache.

The boat shoe was invented in 1935 by Paul A. Sperry, an American sailor who noticed his dog’s ability to run over ice without slipping. Informed by this insight, he cut siping into his soles, creating a solid wet grip on wet decks. The resulting style took on his name, while becoming the starting point for boat shoes everywhere.

The Chauffeur honours its nautical design roots by adding maritime details to its slip-on loafer architecture. The shoe gets an upgrade with the Vans Surf SF for a classic low-profile silhouette. It features a sturdy canvas upper with water-based inks and glues, as a moulded-heel UltraCush sockliner delivers upgraded breathability. A signature waffle rubber outsole in a bright hue with a single-wrapped foxing tape provides lightweight comfort and traction, completing the look.

In a style that looks just as good on a board as it does on the streets, the Chauffeur SF looks fabulously sharp while being comfortable and skate-ready. Go from flicking boards to making heads turn by simply slipping into a pair of these.
