    Authentically professional.

    Vans teamed up with Antihero skateboards to make the Men's Authentic Pro Skate Shoe damn near perfect. Durable canvas, Pro Vulcanized rubber, and Duracap reinforcements stay strong for seasons, and the UltraCush HD footbed keeps the foot close to the board while providing the highest level of impact cushioning. The rubber sole has a waffle tread for supreme grip on decks.

    Durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Built with stronger, thicker materials than the Authentics. Better insoles. And rubber doesn't peel away from the canvas where your foot bends like what happens with most Vans

    if only i could give more than 5 stars

      The quality is really nice and very durable. They were purchased for everyday use, along with beating them up at the skate park. The insole is thick and super comfortable, easy to wear all day. I bought two pairs. This is definitely my new go-to shoe!!!!! Runs true to size.

      these shoes are fantastic, the extra padded soles are great for us old guys.

      I typically get the slip on vans but went with laces this time. They are great. They are tough and cheap enough to replace when they start looking old. Will buy more!

      Great shoes!

      These shoes are great! The only con that I have noticed is that the heel slides a little bit. I am hoping that with time and wear that they will no longer slide. Other than that, I love them!

      perfect for skating

        These have been much more comfortable skating then the standard authentic. Although the break in period was much longer due to the sole thickness. Overall a much better shoe for someone who skate/bmx's with them.

        Decent

        Backcountry was out of stock on my go-to kicks (the original Authentic) so I went with the authentic pro. they're a little stiffer and more robust, but also less comfortable. Fit and style is about the same, so they'll get the job done. The insole in these is extra cushiony, so that's a plus!

        Great insole

        My only gripe is that my foot sits a bit higher in the shoe. With the upgraded insole, my foot/heel does not fit as deep or flush as they do in the classic authentic shoe. Due to the insole, the fit is a smidge tighter around the foot. Overall, the cushion makes up for the flaws with the fit.

        Update to the Classic Vans Authentics

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        In my life I think I've owned at least 10 pairs of Authentics. It's my go to summer shoe. I like how light the canvas is and how simple they are. All that said, I would never skate an authentic. Most will tear in your first few ollies. The pro version tries to address this with a taller more wrapped vulc cap, but i'm still unsure. All that said, these are still my favorite sneakers for other use. Plus with the pro version you get a legit footbed. Nice!

        Size was as expected and true to fit.

        Classic style and quality

          Great casual daily shoe. Vans continues to maintain their standard of style and quality after all these years.
          I have never been disappointed in a pair of Vans that I have owned after 10+ years of wearing them.

          Great gift

          • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: 9

          Got these for my brother in law, he loves vans and has worn them for ever. He loves these and they fit great. Perfect black shoes. Great for skating.

          Would Not Recommend.

            The classic look is always great, but the fit is nowhere near right. Walking in them I could feel my pinky toe being smashed against the fabric, and me heel would slip out with every step.

            Huge fan of Vans, but not these

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
            • Fit: Runs small

            I've been wearing the authentic classics as long as I can remember, they're my go to shoe and something I re-up on every 2-3 months. This time I tried to the authentic pro, expecting the same fit and style as the authentic classic but maybe with a different sole. I was mistaken, the fit is way off for my foot. The toe box feels constrained and it's a really uncomfortable fit. I have the same problem with the era classics. I powered through for a couple of days hoping they would break in, but it's not looking like they will get any more comfortable. Maybe these just run small? Or maybe the design is for super narrow feet? Not sure. Looks like its back to the classic.
