Vans Skate Authentic Shoes in Dress Blues. Styled in a classic deep navy colouring that honours its formal namesake, these revised Vans Skate Authentic’s arrive as yet another remastered silhouette from the brand’s latest ‘Skate Classics’ collection. Inspired by the notion of performative advancement and celebrated archival design, these low collared skate shoes have been actively reengineered to feature revised uppers crafted from a blend of both durable canvas and suede, whilst the molded heel counter, restyled DURACAP underlays and the impact resistant PopCush footbed combine for elevated everyday comfort and structural support. New two part foxings wrap around the design to complement the auxetic midsole and streamlined uppers, whilst the classic rubber Waffle outsole remains true to tradition with its grippy, all-terrain tread. Contrast coloured stitching can be seen across the seams of the toe box and across the rear lateral quarter, with the Skate Collection exclusive checkerboard flag label bringing additional characterised depth to the design. A 5 eyelet lacing system secures the strapped tongue across the natural arch of the foot for added security, whilst the custom ‘Vans Skateboarding’ insoles and the rehashed ‘Off The Wall Skateboarding’ rubber heel scabs help honour the collection’s performative direction.
New for 2021, the Vans ‘Skate Classics’ collection is one that pairs heritage design with an admiration for contemporary innovation and reimagined skate comfort. Inspired by their hefty archival remit and their passion for the sport at hand, the Skate Classics collection remains true to the brand’s seemingly endless commitment to both construction and performance orientated advancement.
