A Vans' classic canvas shoe for the ladies. Keeping things real since '66. The women's Authentic shoes from Vans have stayed true to their roots since 1966. Now they've become a classic for any casual occasion. The Authentic was the first lace-up shoe featuring Vans' signature waffle bottom construction and original vulcanized sole. Check out more unisex colorways here.

  • Upper: Canvas
  • Vulcanized
  • Original Waffle Outsole

Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. The sole consists of several layers of rubber, glued together then attached to the upper with rubber foxing tape. Vulcanized soles don’t provide as much foot protection or support 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 - Back in '66, Paul van Doren made the first soles of his new shoes twice as thick so they would wear longer. That decision ended up defining the company when the world's first skateboarders discovered how Vans' rubber Waffle Outsole let them feel their board while staying firmly connected to it.

Exactly what I ordered! I thought this would be a knock-off of some sort since the price was so good, but they are perfect! Would order again =)

Do they donate to the kitties?
Answered by Jerome J (Tactics Employee) on 4/14/2015
Yes they do! Vans is listed as a Strategic Cause Partnership with ASPCA, meaning that some of the proceeds are donated to animal welfare programs. More information can be found on the ASPCA website through the following link:

Are the sizes UK?
Answered on 8/9/2013
No. we are located in the U.S. so all of the sizes are U.S. as well.
