Vans 2018 Authentic™ Chino range

This spring sees an expansion the Vans’ Authentic™ Chino franchise, with new colourways in the Authentic™ Chino Stretch and Authentic™ Chino Pro.

The classic chino pant emphasizes skateboarding performance innovation, featuring a comfortable fit and Vans’ Sturdy Stretch twill fabrication that provides a timeless workwear feel and skateboard functionality all-in-one.

The Authentic™ Chino styles are designed with skateboarding in mind and built to take a beating with hidden functionality features including double chain stitched flat felled seams to prevent crotch blowouts, sewn bar tacks for reinforcement, curved slant pockets and a hidden coin pocket.

The Authentic™ Chino Stretch features a modern fit and the Authentic™ Chino Pro features a straight fit, treated with SILVADUR® anti-microbial finishing to protect the fabric and minimize odour.

Yep, you read that correctly – these pants are not only designed to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous slamming, they are also technically designed to resist crotch-rot and minimize the stink you’re likely to pick up whilst rolling around in the street skating.
From the ditch to the bar – no threats, no sweats, no regrets.

Vans gained insight from their legendary professional skateboarding team to refine an everyday staple that provides all-day comfort and shape retention, while maintaining Vans’ classic style and functionality.
New this spring, Vans introduces the Authentic™ Chino Stretch in frost grey and copen blue, as well as the Authentic™ Chino Pro in asphalt.

The Authentic™ Chino is available now at select Vans’ dealers.
