The original Californian sole, Vans Authentic, have gone unchanged since their conception in 1966. Staying true to the brands core values the canvas pumps stand as one of the most popular skate-shoes of all time. The timeless design consisting of a vulcanised rubber waffle-textured sole, five eyelet lace-up and padded collar amount to the ultimate skateboarding trainer, and ironically, fashion friendly shoe. Vans alongside their east coast contemporaries, Converse, have blurred the lines between sportswear and fashion becoming cultural icons in which everywhere pair tells their own tale. Complete with the distinctive "Off the Wall" logo.
