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.

    Comments about Authentic:

    Been wearing Vans since my teen years (late 70's/early 80s), and always been happy with the style, comfort, and durability. But I finally reached a point (weight gain? IDK) where 12's were a touch too snug, and 13's leave some space in tor area. If I was in the smaller sizes, I could get a half size. But anything over size 12, they're only available in whole sizes. Not much I can do but get the size 13's (dont really want to switch brands, as the one style that is my favorite is not offered anywhere else.

    So, for those < 12 size, five stars. >12, four stars.

    Comments about Authentic:

    I needed a new pair of Vans as my old authentic lo pros wearing starting to wear out. I bought these to try a new style. I was kind of disappointed with the fit. I wear a 5 in womens and the authentic lo pros fit perfect. These however, feel quite roomy and flop when I walk. I typically do not like to tie my laces, I usually tuck them in my shoe. With these however, I have to in order to keep them from falling off.

      These shoes are great to wear. They are really fashionable, go with almost any outfit, if not all, and are easy to wear. The prints, colors, and look and feel of them are great, and very cost effective. I have almost 8 pairs of Authentics, all in different colors and prints, and plan on buying even more.

        These shoes were stylish yet comfy. I had heard that these shoes were very popular with people my age, so I decided to give them a try. I expected them to be stylish, but not comfy considering they were a no-arch shoe format. I was surprised and delighted when I put them on. They were extremely comfy and supported my feet almost as well as a $100 orthopedic gym shoe! I received numerous compliments and was impressed with the durability of these shoes. If you want a comfortable, stylish and durable shoe then get yourself some Vans.

          I bought my first pair of vans in 2013 and in 2015 I am still wearing them! I just bought my 3rd pair! Vans are the ONLY shoes I ever wear now. They are comfortable on my feet and I can wear them for hours with no pain or discomfort. The ones I bought back in 2013 still look amazing! No holes, tears, or rips! Only one stain on the top of the shoe from painting my house! (I didn't want to take them off, SO COMFY!) I have gotten my friends into wearing Vans and even my boyfriend loves these shoes!

            These are the best. You can wear them with pretty much anything. You might have to break them in a little bit at first, but they're so comfortable you don't even need to wear them with socks. I plan on having them in every color one day.
