- Rubber sole
- Snoopy Design
Vans' storied history, and our connection with skate and surf culture, began
in 1966 Southern California with the rolling out of a single pair of shoes.
They were named 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.
