The name Vans isn’t readily associated with the 1960s – but that’s the decade that gave us the Vans Authentic.

The year was actually 1966 when this lace-up deck shoe made its debut, still using that timeless simplicity to sell units today. Take your pick from a seemingly endless range of colours for the suede upper, with a padded footbed, white outsole and saffle sole completing the look.

Yours for £38.
