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 Cosmic Check Authentic combines our classic low top shoe with a reflective checkerboard print.
This time-honored silhouette also features sturdy canvas uppers, metal eyelets, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
