Born in Anaheim, California in 1966, the Authentic is the original Vans heritage style. Originally known as Vans #44 Deck Shoes, the Authentic became an immediate cult icon and has embodied our “Off The Wall” attitude ever since.
Constructed with a simple lace-up profile, the Authentic combines our classic low top shoe with sturdy canvas uppers featuring pastel colorblocking. This time-honored silhouette also includes metal eyelets and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
