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
  • Original Waffle Outsole
  • Duracap
  • UltraCush™ HD

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.

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.

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

Vans Authentic Pro Skate Shoes - true white/true white
So I had to call tactics to possibly adjust a size on my order. Real person immediately picked up. Professional and friendly. Really cared about customer experience. Shipped out so fast. My takeaway was that they are a small but super efficient operation backed by people who are invested in making customer happy and growing their business.
