The Authentic is the shoe that's stayed true to its roots and hasn't changed since 1966, now it's a classic for any casual occasion. The Authentic is the first lace-up skate shoe to feature Vans' signature waffle bottom construction, original vulcanized sole and durable upper materials.

Materials:Upper: Canvas (Unless Otherwise Noted)

Footbed: EVA

Sole:Vulc Sole
Style:Low Top
Technology Features:Original Waffle Outsole
ASPCA (Cats) Color:The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing cruelty towards animals. When you buy this particular pair of Authentics a portion of the proceeds goes to the ASPCA. Look good, do good.

      If you've never owned the Vans Authentics, you are seriously blowing it. Don't skate 'em, they rip to fast, but get them to chill in. They look good, they're inexpensive, there really isn't a better casual shoe out there. I work tactics and got these for free, but I've bought countless pairs, literally I don't even know how many of these shoes I've owned. They're the best. Get 'em, you won't regret it.

      I love vans but the canvas wears out on my shifting foot when I ride my Harley so I love this material (not realing skating related) but very disappointed the sole started separating on the 3rd day of wearing them. These were authentics so I realize they are glued and not sewed like some vans but they don't offer ballistic material in other shoes I like.

            These are the old skool style. Iv been skating since 1993 these are killer for the old skool style carving,360s,cutbacks,wheelers/ manuals, grinders/5050s off the coping and pool skating. riding off curbs and crusing and much more. Also great for after and before going Surfing. Iv been wearing the originals since I started skating as a kid
