Well I had two pairs of Authenitcs, One was Black with Gothic grape stitching and laces. The others were just black. My Gothic grape ones I skated for a month and already had needed a new pair or cover it with shoe goo. My others for casual wear were really good. There nice and stylish and can look good with almost anything....But It was pure black, and i could see stains so easily. And I only wore then inside places. No lie I would ride to a mall in my old shoes then change them once i get inside...Weird fetish but still.... This shoe is still worth its price.... I just don't recommend it for skating purposes unless its long-boarding or cruising.

i love these shoes because they are really cute and go with a lot of outfits. the only cons are they make a squeaking noise when i walk and they hurt my feet if i walk around too much in them. they are all around a pretty good shoe.

            I had shoes like Tom's but they do not give me any support for all day walking. I love my vans because they are comfortable with my jeans for wearing all day and they look good. I should have gotten these a long time ago as I wore Vans when I was a kid and loved them then too. :)
