The Vans Authentic is aptly named, as its decades-long legacy has seen it enter every realm of every culture from skateboarding to hip-hop. The latest Vault releases send it to a luxurious arena with the their soft, textured nubuck uppers. The first pair relies on a Wild Dove/High Rise combination, while the second gets a Madder Brown upper. Both shows off details like waxed laces and brass eyelets. Thick, leather-covered insoles ensure these will make for great no-sock sneaks. Grab either pair now from select retailers, including Nice Kicks and by phone order at 512.320.8100.
