Vans California presents the Authentic featuring the classic checker motif in three vintage-inspired color options for the summer.
In 'Mango/White', 'True Blue/Red' and 'Waterfall/White', the Authentic gets three colorful checkered options in a washed canvas construction for each. Leather laces and Vans tabs add premium touches, while a solid white midsole keeps them looking nice and clean. In place of the usual Waffle sole below sits a boat shoe-inspired rubber outsole.
Look for the Authentic Checker Pack later this month at select Vans California retailers.
