The Authentic, Vans original and now iconic style, is a simple low top, lace-up with durable canvas upper, metal eyelets, Vans flag label and Vans original Waffle Outsole.
The History of Vans
Born in Anaheim, California in 1966, the Authentic is the original Vans heritage style. Originally know 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 low top, lace-up profile, this classic shoe also features sturdy canvas uppers, metal eyelets, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
