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'm going on Fifty - and probably not your average Vans wearer. Having said that...I bought my first Vans in 1983, here in the greater KC area. Those b/w checkered slip-ons caused quite a stir, and were not easy to find - I think one store in the area carried them. Little did I know, so many years later I would find my sons wearing their own Vans. It really shouldn't be any surprise that generations are now enjoying Vans...what made them popular back in 1983 - stands today. Simple things like: comfort, color & fit, will never go out of style. Guess that's why I bought the solid black classic tie-ups. And while you won't find any of those fabulous checkered pairs hiding in this old man's closet, one of my 50 y.o. buddies just bought a pair of the Flamingos. LOL!!! What can I say, he's obviously not the conservative one.
