This "Authentic45" modell us using the 1965 original flatter deck sole. Very comfy and grippy. The pattern on the canvas top is inspired by fellow surfers Hawaii shirt anno 1965!! Shoe comes in special box and sole and back tag detailing showing respect to legendary surfer Duke Kahanamoku and his team, that Vans founder Steve Van Doreen met and sponsored back in the 60s. This show style is a replica of that shoe!! Extremly nice and comfy for summer. And a good story to tell.
