No big investors. No one to answer to. No rules to follow. Octopus is surfer-owned and run, built with one purpose: To make surf gear that lives up to the rigorous demands of their world-class team that includes the likes of Michael February, Harry Bryant, and Dylan Graves. And like their diverse roster of talent, Octopus lets their product do the talking.
In the first-ever Vans x Octopus collaboration, you will find an assortment of footwear and apparel that lives up to this promise, including the UltraRange EXO. Every item is restrained and minimal on the outside while being technical, performance-oriented, and uncompromising on the inside. If it’s not going to get you where you’re going and help you perform once you get there, you won’t see the Octopus name on it.
Featuring sturdy textile and synthetic uppers, the Vans x Octopus UltraRange EXO will not only stand up to the journey, but keep you comfortable in the most uncomfortable of situations. Armed with a co-molded UltraCush midsole, updated RapidWeld detailing, a lightweight, die-cut rubber outsole, and a breathable Old Skool-inspired upper, this is the UltraRange-evolved.
•FULL SUPPORT - EXO Skeleton provides built-in support across the toes and medial sidewall, with a heel lock for a secure fit.
•ULTRACUSH® FOR COMFORT - The co-molded UltraCush® Lite midsole increases comfort, not weight.
•ALL-TERRAIN GRIP - Full rubber-wrapped reverse waffle lug outsoles improve traction and flexibility.
•INCREASED BREATHABILITY - An UltraCush® tongue with breathability ports offers superior airflow.
