    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 bought these shoes a couple months ago hoping i could find just a regular shoe. When I first saw them, I was completely in love with them. When I bought them I realized they matched most things really well. They are different and you can expect to be the only one around you who has them. But theres a down side. They stain pretty easily. I caught myself trying to rub off dirt every time I looked down at my feet. Since these shoes are off white, stains are alot easier to be seen. I surely don't like seeing stains on my shoes. If you are caught in the rain, don't expect your shoes to look the same. I think these shoes are good for once and awhile wear. They are definitely not an everyday type of shoe. I recommend that you buy them ONLY if you don't plan on wearing them everything day.

    Poor quality

      Comments about Authentic:

      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 Authentic:

      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.

        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.

                        I returned this particular pair with the rubber sole & re-ordered the same pair with the black sole. They are much cuter & go with everything.

                            I wear a size 8 in every shoe, and I had slim vans from middle school that were 7.5 so i thought I should go up a bit incase my foot grew. When the 8's got to my house they were so big and I had to return them meaning I payed $20 for shipping to my house and back for shoes I didn't even wear. I recommend finding a store you can buy them from to try them on
