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 Pig Suede Authentic combines our classic low top shoe with sturdy suede uppers in exciting new colorways. This time-honored silhouette also includes metal eyelets and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
