OVERVIEW

The Authentic Lite has been re-engineered using modern construction methods to improve fit, increase comfort, and reduce the overall weight. We maintained the same aesthetic, but a completely new fit and feel will be experienced thanks to our ActionFit last shape as well as an UltraCush™ Lite outsole and footbed.

Im an IT tech and spend most of my day on my feet so comfortable shoes are a must. Got the cammo ones and they are great. All the Vans coolness but none of the heavy clunkyness of the original vans. If I had a gripe it would be they need to offer more colors and Ive read they wear down fast so its probably not a good choice for skaters.

I ride bmx and I almost wore through the bottom in a couple days of riding. The sole is made of a different rubber than most vans and it seems to wear away really fast. On the other side, they are probably the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. If you are looking to just walk around and whatnot, get these. However, if you are looking to skate, bmx, or whatever, you will be disappointed and astonished with how fast you destroy this shoe. Oh yea, they live up to the "Lite" name. They feel like they weigh half as much as normal Authentics.

        Comments about Authentic Lite:

        This is my 3rd pair of authentic lites since last Fall and I can't say enough about them. They are incredibly comfortable, stay clean longer and maintain their shape better than traditional Vans authentic. I have white, Navy and checkerboard versions and pretty much have shelved all other pairs.

              The side of the shoe ripped within first few weeks of wearing them. Love the shoes, but they are ruined after less than a month.

              Super super lite sneaks tge new taylored fit works great for me. Only wish is that the true white was in the lineup. Red would be my next pick a true red same as canvas authentic.

                    Actually, I can't decide between the old version(authentic) and this new version(authentic lite) at first. But the positive reviews of the new version comfort me. And it is definitely the right choice! This shoes is so comfortable, so light and so cute!

                                First pair of Vans and couldnt be happier with the purchasing experience. Size charts were correct to ensure I got the right size and billing/tracking was top notch.

                                        they white part of the shoe (that I don't know how it is called) looks too big.

                                        The design is just amazing but if you buy a number 6 for woman is not gonna be too cool, because of that..

                                            Comments about Authentic Lite:

                                            I only wear these at work (office job sitting at a desk), and they were comfortable for about 4 months. I've had them for about 5 months now, and the sole is completely worn down. Also, because of the lightweight rubber sole they squeak and are slippery when walking on tile and other surfaces. The insole no longer provides any support of comfort. I've been wearing Vans for years, but these shoes have been a big disappointment.
