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.
- Molded EVA Footbed
- Original Waffle Outsole
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.
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.
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.
