The Vans range of core classics features color-ways in the following iconic models:

The SK8-Hi: With roots stemming from the Vans Old Skool, the Vans Sk8-hi was the first high top skate shoe.

The Old-Skool: In 1977 the world was introduced to the Vans Old Skool, the first shoe to feature the now iconic Vans Stripe, or as it was originally known, the Jazz Stripe. With features like the trade mark Waffle Grip outsole, padded heel, and suede toe-cap, the shoe became an instant favorite amoung everyone from skateboarders to sneaker heads. With the Core Classics always available, you can branch out and grab some Vans Old Skool in limited edition colours and patterns.
The Era:  The classic look and feel of the Vans Era is just one of the reasons we're so happy to carry this iconic brand. This low top lace up has been a must have for shoe lovers since their first appearance in the 1970's. One of the first shoes designed by skateboarders, the Era originally started as a made-to-order shoe known as the #95, that has become a classic. With more redesigns coming out every season, you can have an Era for all occasions!
The Authentic: The original Vans shoe, Dog Town and Z Boy style. Lace up styling and a variety of colours make these versatile classic shoes a must have with everyone. With colours and patterns to reflect every taste, there's no wonder why these are the undeniable icon of the Vans brand.
The LPE:  Also known as the Low Pro Era, this lower profile version of the iconic Vans Authentic shoe boasts a slimmer shape and sole without sacrificing the syle and quality of the original.
The CSO: The Vans Classic Slip-On is the ultimate laid back summer shoe. Slip on a pair of these babies in the classic checkerboard Spicolli (originally "style #98"), or any number of other patterns or colours and hit the streets in style!  All I need are some tasty waves and Vans slip ons and I'm fine! 
The Half Cab: A wonderful example of a brand that listens to their customers. Originally created after Vans heard about their customers literally cutting their Caballero shoes down to allow for more ankle movement while they were skateboarding.  The name Half Cab literally comes from "Half" "Caballero" Grab your board and hit the park in these classic mid top skate shoes. With padded ankles and the classic rubber waffle outsole, these are both comfortable and durable.

The Converse core collection features classic colours in these iconic profiles:

The Chuck Taylor All Star Hi top: The Converse All Star Hi Top is an all-time classic.

The Jack Purcell:  Canadian born, World Badminton Champion Jack Purcell designed a pair of stylish shoes for better support on the badminton court. Later this design was picked up by Converse and has become part of their core collection and is always being revamped for a new generation! This stylish and understated classic always features the 1930's shilouette, iconic Smile™ on the toe cap, and a comfortable, upgraded insole.
The Chuck Taylor All Star Slip On:  These low top, slip on shoes are perfect for lazy days!
