Vans has stayed true to their roots since 1966, and the Authentics are a classic look for any casual occasion. This is their first lace-up skate shoe to feature Vans' signature waffle bottom construction, original vulcanized sole and durable upper materials.
- These shoes are unisex, however they are all listed in men's sizing.
- To convert men's sizing to women's sizing - subtract your regular size by 1.5 (Ex. If you wear a women's size 8.5 shoe, you'll want to look at options for men's size 7 here). Women's specific sizes and colorways can be found here.
- (cotton hemp) drizzle/true white: Textile
- Original Waffle Outsole
- Molded EVA Footbed
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 board-feel to keep all the Vans' fans happy.
Molded EVA Footbed - Ethyl Vinyl Acetate (EVA) insoles are a firmer material than you would find on standard orthotic insoles to offer better shock absorption while reducing the weight of the overall shoe.
