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, The Authentic. In the generations since, they have only gotten more popular amongst hardcore skaters and skate enthusiasts. Their design is simple, stylish, and effective: a low top lace-up profile made with sturdy canvas uppers, and signature waffle rubber soles.
