The Old Skool has never been lacking in the attitude department. It brought the dawn of the classic Vans side stripe that has developed into a status symbol of tradition and skate stature. Aside from all that personality, they have lasted as long as they have because of their ability to perform on a skateboard, and to last, and last. Though they now share the ranks with many new Vans styles with their own innovations, the Old Skools aren't going anywhere.

    I've been wearing my black and white old-skools everyday for years now. my dad always wore them, and bought me my first pair when I was pretty young. I kept wearing them because they're perfect.

    They're super comfy, they last ages, and they wear-in really well. They also have really good grip if you're a skater, and as they're not quite as popular as the Eras and the Authentics, they're kinda more original.
    I don't think there's actually any Cons to these shoes, as they never really get dirty, they don't stain, they don't fall apart, and they only really start to wear out after years of day to day wear.

    seriously, best shoes.

    I wear these shoes to cruze around with my daughter on my old school board with big softies. They've got good padding under the ball of the foot to take a good beating. The heel isn't as well padded and they ache after a long walk. Love the look but the rubber that meets the canvas started separating after about 2 months. The canvas them started to tear at this point. Bummer. I still wear them around cuz they're super comfy even if they do look a little trashy after about 6 months. There's got to be something more durable to spend you're money on. Also, why so many lace holes?

      Comments about Suede/Canvas Old Skool:

      I've been wearing black, Old Skool-style Vans for almost 20 years, and I have no intention of stopping anytime soon. I find them exceedingly comfortable, maybe because my feet are as flat as a blackboard. I also love the mood and self-confidence they convey: 'I'm totally relaxed and at peace with the world.' I don't think I as a person am that satisfied with life, but I like to portray that kind of person. Btw, I think the reason why my Vans wear out quickly is because, in any given week, I wear them more than any other shoe, for at least 30 or so hours a week. You can see, then, why mine wear out quickly.

          I usually get the traditional looking Vans Off the Wall, but I decided to go for something different with these, and I'm definitely not regretting it. I also do not own a pair of white shoes at all so I'm glad to have went with these.
