Utilizing primary and monochromatic colors both on the rubber foxing tape and the canvas upper is a distinguished feature of the Vans Primary Mono Authentic. It created a nice touch and an added twist to the original silhouette of Vans Authentic. Several wearers appreciated the vibrant color effect, producing a good vibe and making you stand out from the rest of the crowd.
Vans was established by Jim and Paul Van Doren, together with their partners Serge D’Elia and Gordon Lee in a corner store in Anaheim, California in 1966. The company launched their first shoe, the Vans Authentic or also known as the “Style #44,” which had a minimalistic design with thick vulcanized rubber outsole and canvas upper.
Its simplicity and functionality were probably the reasons why it attracted skateboarders. The vulcanized construction and its waffle tread pattern on the sole gave the skateboarders the excellent board feel and reliable traction as well as the high-abrasion resistance they needed.
Because of the success of the “Style #44,” the company created and launched a tweaked version which was the “Style #95” or the Vans Era, utilizing padding around the collar to reinforce its structure. It became a hit as well and still popular up to this day.
Vans Primary Mono Authentic needs no introduction because it is the brand’s original shoe that defines Vans’ heritage since it was first sold in 1966. It still has a sturdy canvas upper and the signature waffle tread pattern on the outsole. It features the rubber foxing tape having the same print or monochromatic color with the canvas upper, giving a new twist on the classic silhouette.
