The Vans Skate Authentic High Shoes are a new take on the Skate Authentic. This shoe provides all the benefits of the Skate Authentic but with more ankle protection. These shoes integrate tongue straps for a snug fit, DURACAP™ underlay for durability, SickStick™ a rubber compound used to make a grippy outsole, and internal heel shanks to deliver more board feel in order to create a classic yet modern skate shoe.

  • Vulcanized
  • Original Waffle Outsole
  • Duracap™
  • Gusseted Tongue
  • SickStick™



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.

Gusseted Tongue - Keeps the tongue in place and keeps precipitation out.

SickStick™ - Taking inspiration from Vans' beloved original gum rubber formula, the SickStick formula is the grippiest and the stickiest gum sole in Vans history. Extensively tested by Vans' team riders, the formula is uniquely calibrated to deliver enhanced grip and durability, and also make a firm bind to the foxing tape, so you can be in complete control of your board.

Vans Skate Authentic High Shoes - navy/black
The new insoles feel great. The elastic that holds the tongue tighter to your foot takes a little getting used to but it's not a bad thing at all. And I love the Blue Suede.
