The Authentics find their roots in the days leading up to the skate and BMX boom. They were the low-top lace-up casual shoe that would eventually find favour with wheeled athletes everywhere. Because of their comfort, their extreme durability, their good looks and the quality one gets for their very friendly price they quickly became a Vans standard that led to a whole family tree of like-minded kicks.
