The Vans Authentic “Flames” is a fiery edition of the classic low-top skate shoe. The black canvas upper is covered with yellow and red flames that are outlined in metallic silver. The graphics give the Vans Authentic a look that is reminiscent of classic hot rods. Below the flame-covered upper is Vans' traditional vulcanized sole with a white midsole that's accented by a black foxing stripe. The red “Off the Wall” license plate sits on the heel, and the iconic gum rubber waffle outsole finishes the shoes off.
