Cotton canvas upper. Checkerboard motif. Rubber sole. Lace-up closure. Signature rubber waffle outsole. Off The Wall skateboard logo. Originally released in 1966 as the Vans 44 Deck Shoe, the Authentic is a longtime bestseller for the brand. A timeless style, the silhouette is minimal by design, here featuring a lightweight yet durable cotton canvas upper that showcases the iconic checkerboard pattern, lace-up fastening with metal eyelets, and the signature rubber waffle outsole. The shoe is minimally branded with a small Vans logo tag as well as the Off The Wall skateboard logo.
