A piece of Vans history

It all started once upon a time in Anaheim, California. In 1966, a store opened that sold canvas shoes for skateboarding. Attached to the back of that store was a factory that made those shoes. Those shoes were called Vans. In the last 50 years, the way that Vans makes them has changed slightly, however, they've released these special edition models that are taking it back to the past with details reminiscent of the original models. They've even got the original style codes - 36 DX (Old Skool) and 44 DX (Authentic)! It's a collection we're proud to feature with the classic white colourway of each style. So what's so different you say? We'll break it down for you:

- raised, marshmallow sidewall with a glossy sheen
- heavy 10 oz. canvas upper
- suede toe cap (old skool)

Here's the twist: each pair has a UltraCush lining - a modern insertion into the timeless classic
