Product ID: 176173 VN000EE3BLK1 700053288546
The Authentic is the first shoe Vans produced in 1966 - they sold 12 on their first day direct from their factory. It was soon on the feet of all the skateboarders across California due to its durability and unbelievable board feel and grip. It still looks and feels just as good today whether your shredding at the park or trying to impress the girls.
Vans, the original skate shoe since 1966. Still leading the way in classic style and with a skate team that boasts a long list of the greatest legends in skateboarding: Tony Alva, Geoff Rowley, John Cardiel, Anthony Van Engelen, Steve Caballero, Ray Barbee, Dustin Dollin and Tony Trujillo just to name a few! They are great to skate in thanks to leading technology but still with a heritage and style which makes them the favourite shoe amongst many bands, BMX'ers and lurkers worldwide.
I ordered these thinking that they were a plain black pair, turns out that they are actually more of a green colour. Fortunately I thought that it was a nice combination, even better than the black so I kept them.
