The Old Skool has never been lacking in the attitude department. It brought the dawn of the classic Vans side stripe that has developed into a status symbol of tradition and skate stature. Aside from all that personality, they have lasted as long as they have because of their ability to perform on a skateboard, and to last, and last. Though they now share the ranks with many new Vans styles with their own innovations, the Old Skools aren't going anywhere.

  • Canvas and suede uppers.
  • Reinforced suede toe, heel and eyerow.
  • Side stripe detail.
  • Vulcanized waffle outsole.
  • Solid colorways.

    I've been wearing my black and white old-skools everyday for years now. my dad always wore them, and bought me my first pair when I was pretty young. I kept wearing them because they're perfect.

    They're super comfy, they last ages, and they wear-in really well. They also have really good grip if you're a skater, and as they're not quite as popular as the Eras and the Authentics, they're kinda more original.
    I don't think there's actually any Cons to these shoes, as they never really get dirty, they don't stain, they don't fall apart, and they only really start to wear out after years of day to day wear.

    seriously, best shoes.

    I wear these shoes to cruze around with my daughter on my old school board with big softies. They've got good padding under the ball of the foot to take a good beating. The heel isn't as well padded and they ache after a long walk. Love the look but the rubber that meets the canvas started separating after about 2 months. The canvas them started to tear at this point. Bummer. I still wear them around cuz they're super comfy even if they do look a little trashy after about 6 months. There's got to be something more durable to spend you're money on. Also, why so many lace holes?

      Comments about Suede/Canvas Old Skool:

      love these shoes so much. They are a little stiff when you first get them but you just have to break them in. Another thing is that they have poor arch support but I just put in an arch support. Other than that they a perfect.

      Comments about Suede/Canvas Old Skool:

      These shoes are the cutest! Sadly, I only wore them twice because they literally made my heels bleed. Even through socks, the plastic lining rubbed the skin by my Achilles tendon until it became raw. I let my wounds heal and walked in them again for about a mile... same thing. Since I'd already worn them I had to donate them.
