Unisex Lightning Authentic

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 Lightning Authentic combines our classic low top shoe with sturdy textile uppers featuring a bright blue, allover lightning print. This time-honored silhouette also includes black sidewalls, metal eyelets, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.
