You’ve got to give it to Vans, they know how to spin off their classics. Here, they have taken the tried and true Authentic and 106 to another level – literally. Like they are trying to emulate, or one-up the Chuck Taylor Hi. Well, it certainly caught my attention. My first impression is that the mod works for the 106 more than the Authentic. The silhouette looks evenly shaped and congruous. The Authentic looks a little haphazard, a little too skinny on the ankles. At least Vans gave you some crazy colorways though – check out the neon green and neon pink below!
