The Authentic VR3 SF combines our original low top silhouette with the Vans Surf SF build to create an upgraded, comfortable lace-up style. Featuring collapsible heels for versatility and washed uppers made from 50% organic cotton canvas and responsibly sourced leather, the Salt Wash Authentic VR3 SF fuses modern and vintage detailing for a twist on the ultimate heritage style. This classic lace-up shoe also includes the new EcoCush™ footbed and EcoWaffle™ outsole. In order to reduce the overall footprint of Vans, their team has set ambitious sustainability goals.
