    So I've been wearing authentics for years. As a female I always found this unisex (a.k.a. men's) shoe a bit wide. Like even if i tightened the laces all the way my foot would still slide around a bit width-wise. So I was excited to see the authentic slim, I thought they would fit more like a regular width woman's shoe. But they're even more narrow than that, they're like a Narrow width woman's shoe. The length seems true to size. But the fabric part that is supposed to fit around the foot is quite shallow as well, I have to leave the laces almost totally expanded. Also the back part of the shoe is cut so high that it digs into and chafes my heel. This is a new style, and I think they're still working out the kinks.

          Comments about Washed Authentic Slim:

          I really love these, and the color is super bright and fun. I'm not sure how I feel about the slim fit personally, so next time I'll probably go back to the standard or the low pros. I actually got these shoes for my wedding in May, so I'm still breaking them in slowly so they'll look nice for pictures and stuff. They're great shoes!
