Vans heard you wanted a pair of Authentics you could skate. The Authentic Pros are their answer. A super cush sockliner absorbs rough impacts, and Duracap underlays improve durability against griptape. These are the same Authentics you've been wearing for years, just better.

  • Vulcanized
  • Original Waffle Outsole
  • Duracap

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. These don't provide as much foot protection 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 - Made with soles twice as thick so they would wear longer, this original formula combines durability with flexy board-feel to keep all the Vans' fans happy.

Duracap - Developed and tested to withstand the abuse of the Vans pro skateboarding team; reinforcement is provided through rubber underlays in the toebox and ollie-area for lasting durability to save you time and money.

Vans Authentic Pro Skate Shoes - black/classic gum
Ultracush is all I ever wear from vans anymore. Once you try the “pro” version of any shoe from them you won’t go back. Great durable upper and nice thick sole. Love these.

Not bad but I am switching to Adidas after wearing these shoes...Vans soles seem to wear through excessively new Adidas 3MC shoes not only seem to have a tougher sole, but the sole is noticeably thicker. I won't be buying Vans anymore
