Every so often, a shoe style comes along that creates a buzz just based on its name. Case in point: The Vans Authentic. The first Authentic hit the shelves in 1966, and has since become a hugely popular choice within the skate community, while also carrying the weight of being the staple shoe that launched Vans into the iconic brand it is today. It's clean, simple, and always has great coloring options. The Vans Authentic features a canvas upper for classic stylin' and a die-cut EVA insert for padding and support.
