Completely updated for skateboarders, the Skate Classics range offers even more to achieve the maximum evolution in skateboarding. Featuring a completely redesigned upper, molded heel counter, fixed tongue straps, and revised DURACAP™ reinforcements, the Skate Classics Authentic offers an essential fit that provides added breathability and durability where skaters need it most. The two-piece reinforcement strip, including a more robust fluted toe, provides better contact with the board and the rubber compound sole that made Vans famous has been improved with SICKSTICK™ rubber compound. Additionally, an internal shank in the heel provides additional grip, boardfeel, support and durability. Paired with innovative sidewall coating, a POPCUSH™ footbed for superior cushioning and impact protection, and a stylish checkered flag, the new Skate Classics Authentic gives you the iconic look you've been looking for, plus all the performance that true skaters demand. It features a sturdy suede and canvas upper.

  • INCREASED DURABILITY - DURACAP™ reinforced materials, deeper knurl texture on the toe bumpers, and higher sidewall heights provide a more heritage look with increased durability and protection.
  • FULLY REDESIGNED UPPERS - Reconstructed with a molded heel counter and internal tongue straps for a locked-in fit and more board control.
  • LEGENDARY GRIP - Our proprietary SickStick™ gum rubber compound is our stickiest rubber yet.
  • POPCUSH CUSHIONING - Our best cushioning and impact protection. PopCush™ energy return footbeds protect your feet while helping to lessen leg fatigue for longer skate sessions.
  • ICONIC STYLING - A mix of suede and 6 and 10 oz canvas has been used at the upper, maintaining the aesthetic of the original Old Skool™.
