The name says it all: The Authentic Sneakers by Vans are the most authentic shoes you can get. The low top with simple lacing and original Vans Waffle Sole is one of the favourites among skaters. The Soft Suede Authentic Sneaker is special and comes with a suede upper. The classic, durable rubber sole with special waffle pattern brings good grip on your board. Vans' storied history, and their connection with skate and surf culture, began in 1966 Southern California with the rolling out of a single pair of shoes. They were named Authentic. In the generations since, they have only gotten more popular amongst hardcore skaters and skate enthusiasts.
Nothing really says skateboarding like Vans! Their first skate shoe was produced in 1966 and it's been a smooth, innovative ride ever since. Creativity and dedication to skateboarding is the foundation of Vans and with that they have made a huge impact so far. With their trailblazing Vans Warped Tour they have won over skateboard hearts all over the world, including ours.
