We saw a brief return of these last year with a premium suede finish, but the Vans Authentic are now back with a more traditional canvas upper.

First introduced back in 1966, the Vans Authentic is a classic plimsoll-like casual shoe with that canvas upper in white, coupled with a vulcanised rubber sole in a choice of colours – one is pictured above, you can check out another over the page. There's also a padded footbed, white eyelets and a waffle sole design.

If you want a pair, £35 bags you a slice of history.
