Vans Skate Authentic Shoes in TecTuff Black. A re-invented remodelling of a skate classic, these performance-orientated Vans Authentic skate shoes are designed with skate-specific function in mind as part of the brand’s revolutionary new ‘Skate Classics’ collection. Styled with water-repellent TecTuff reinforced uppers crafted from a reinforced blend of both suede and canvas, these low-profile classics have been innovatively redesigned to suit modern-day skate-centric necessity. Featuring a new and improved undercut, a larger knurl, a revised bottom plate, double-up foxing and the improved use of two new sockliners across its interior, this returning classic is remastered to suit any demanding session. An improved DURACAP shape supplies a more breathable sense of wear, whilst the iconic Waffle-tread sole now hosts improved traction to suit any given terrain. Contrast crisp-white bartack reinforcements complement the new checkerboard flag branding across the mid-quarter, whilst updated heel-scab branding reflects this latest collection’s dedication to skate. The cream-toned 5-eyelet lacing system secures the revised strap-down tongue across the natural arch of the foot for a new and improved heel-fit, whilst the design’s added sidewall finish helps seal the profile with an active ode to heritage and time-honoured legacy.
Born from a desire to supply skaters with classic-styled shoes that are built to withstand the day-on-day demands of any hard-hitting skate session, Vans’ latest ‘Skate Classics’ collection hosts an array of redesigned staples aimed at ‘helping skaters progress’. Built to handle the ins and outs of everyday sessions thanks to improved odes to durability, protection and general longevity, Vans’ revolutionary Skate Classics release remains true to form with its heritage-inspired aesthetic.
