Shop Vans Authentic™ Shoes – NZ

The very first shoe designed by Paul and Jim Van Doren in 1966, the Vans Authentic™ was originally designed as a non-slip boat shoe called the #44 Deck Shoe.  However once skateboarders discovered the waffle rubber sole, they adopted it as a skate shoe, revolutionising the brand and making it what we know today! 

At SOLECT, we stock the original and iconic Vans Authentic™ low-top shoe in premium leather, available in classic black leather Vans or white leather Vans shoes.  With metal eyelets, vulcanised sole, and signature waffle outsoles for durability and superior grip, the Vans Authentic™ is built to last.  The shoes popularity has extended beyond the original skater and surfer fans, and now is favoured by everyone for their timeless, versatile design and superior quality.
