Vans heard you wanted a pair of Authentics you could skate. The Authentic Pros are their answer. A hefty UltraCush HD sockliner absorbs rough impacts. Duracap underlays improve durability against griptape. These are the same Authentics you've been wearing for years, just better.
  • Vulcanized
Primary Upper Materials
Canvas, except for:
  • (suede) black: Suede
  • Original Waffle Outsole
  • Duracap
  • UltraCush HD

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.


Original Waffle Outsole - Back in '66 Paul van Doren made the first soles of his new shoes twice as thick so they would wear longer. That decision ended up defining the company when the world's first skateboarders discovered how Vans' Waffle Outsole let them feel their board while staying firmly connected to it.

Duracap - Vans shoes with Duracap feature reinforced rubber underlays in the areas where your shoes wear out the fastest. Durcap was developed and tested to withstand the abuse of the Vans pro skateboarding team, and gives you added durability even if you skate daily.

UltraCush HD - Vans' polyurethane-based UltraCush HD sockliner keeps the foot close to the board yet won't pack out over time, providing the highest level of impact cushioning.

Quality Shoes

Vans Authentic Pro Skate Shoes - (canvas) black/gum
These shoes are quality made, and feature the ultra-cush insoles. However, for some reason the left shoe has become really uncomfortable to wear, and has caused blisters on my feet. It could be my feet I'm not sure. Hoping after they break in more they'll be more comfortable to wear. Other than that they look cool. Suffer for fashion I guess.

Vans Authentic Pro Skate Shoes - true white/true white
The shoes were what I ordered, they truly are white, and they are made extremely well. Whenever you can buy Vans Pros instead of regular ones, do it. It's worth it.

Vans Authentic Pro Skate Shoes - (canvas) black/gum
Great shoe. Recommend you get 1/2 size bigger on these style shoes because they are tight.

Vans Authentic Pro Skate Shoes - (50th) '74 navy/white
This is a classic pair of Vans with a secret under the hood: terrific support for comfortable all-day wear. I love it.

Heads up: these run bigger than typical Vans. I got mine a 1/2 size down.
