Core Classics

Get back to basics with this huge selection from our core line up! These are the timeless classics from Converse and Vans that never go out of style!  If you're after basic colours with a clean aesthetic in time-honoured styles, this is the line for you.

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

The SK8-Hi: A bolder look for the unafraid. In the original or platform sole, these high tops are a fashion statement that has passed the test of time.
The Old-Skool: The iconic "Vans Stripe" makes these classic skate shoes instantly recognizable. The waffle grip sole and padded heel will make them the shoe you'll want to wear every day.
The Era:  A classic low top Vans skate shoe loaded with extra goodies. Padded ankle collar, waffle sole, and quality Vans construction make this shoe a long lasting favorite.
The Authentic: The first lace-up skate shoe by Vans has remained a favourite for it's comfort and simplicity, not to mention it's fantastic good looks.
The Authentic Lo Pro:  If you had to pick one shoe to wear every day, for every occasion, this low profile lace-up would be that shoe. In classic black or true white these kicks will go with everything in your closet, or add a bit of funk to your outfit with a pop of colour or pattern.
The LPE:  Also known as the Low Pro Era, these sleek and streamlined low profile lace-ups combine the slim lace-up look of the Authentic with a more structured, durable double stiched upper. Padded collar and fabric lined interior create added comfort and the look and feel of quality construction.
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: A fashion icon, this shoe has been worn by everyone from Robert Plant to Kurt Cobain. It would be impossible to find a more versatile, or well loved shoe anywhere.  All Stars, Chucks, Chuck Taylors, Sneakers, Tennis shoes,  basketball shoes, the list goes on - it doesn't matter what you call 'em, just wear 'em.
The Chuck Taylor All Star Low top:  Low Tops brought to you by Converse. Get that cool, classic look in the ease of an oxford. All star lows are great for summer.  
The Jack Purcell:  Who knew that a failed attempt to rival Converse from Goodrich tires would turn into another iconic shoe style from Converse, except for maybe Converse themselves. They have a double bumper toe, special designed court sole and extra padded insoles for comfort.
The Dainty:  A more feminine version of Classic Converse styles, the Dainty are designed with a lower profile, slimmer sole, and a narrower fit. Perfect with a summer dress or a cute pair of jeans, these sneakers are slimed and styled for women's comfort.
The Chuck Taylor All Star Slip On:  Everyone likes to be lazy on occasion, the Chuck Taylor Slips are perfect to feed this need without sacrificing style. Choose from the Core Classic Slip-ons in Black, White or Charcoal, or browse the Dainty, Shoreline or Ballet Lace styles for a more feminine look.
