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 Translucent Authentic combines our classic low top shoe with sturdy canvas uppers and colorful, translucent sidewalls that reveal a classic checkerboard stripe beneath. This time-honored silhouette also includes metal eyelets and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
