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:

          These shoes are great. They're stylish and a flexible shoe that can go with almost any outfit.

          Be warned however, if you plan on wearing no socks or thin liners (like myself) they might run a tad bit large. When I wear normal socks they fit true to size but I prefer to have no sock showing so I wear think liner socks and they are a tad bit big.

          Also, the shoes are more off-white than the picture looks. It's not a detriment to the shoe, I was just surprised when I opened the box and saw how creamy the color was. I thought it would be closer to white than it was.

          Overall fantastic shoe. I will buy Vans again (just a half size smaller!)

            The inside lining completely fell apart within a few weeks of wearing these. It didn't even take much walking in them to do it. Probably the most uncomfortable pair of Vans I own.

              Comments about Vans Canvas Authentic:

              These shoes are amazing, I am not much of a skater but I just love the way they look. They look good with jeans and shorts, long socks and short socks. They seem stiff and uncomfortable at first but after wearing them and walking around with them (breaking them in) they become your new best friend. I have long and sort of skinny feet and there was no problem at all. i can tell that if my feet were to stop growing length wise and just get wider that I could just loosen up the laces and there will be no problem. However I wouldn't suggest these to people who are really rough with their shoes because I have been told that they tear rather easy if you skate roughly. Thank you Vans for creating a shoe that is perfect for me, I mean, I have 8 pairs of shoes and they're all vans, three of them are authentics and one of those three is a sexy custom pair that are only for special occasions aha! I also would like to add that these shoes are perfect for my lifestyle and that they may not have the same results with everyone. But they're perfect if you're trying to look good, that's for sure.
