The Chambray Retro Floral Authentic Slim, built on a slimmer last than the original Vans Authentic, features a simple low top, lace-up profile with sturdy chambray textile uppers, metal eyelets, signature micro waffle rubber outsoles, and a narrower fit.
Okay, I took off a star because unless you look at ALL the pictures, you might (as I did) miss the fact that these shoes aren't fully black. I happened to look at a shoe angle that made it appear that these shoes were what I was looking for (totally black with black, not white, stitching) when in all actuality, they are black with black stitching AND random colored threads here and there (like tiny paint spatter).
I should have read the reviews. Others talked about a "design," so I've gotta own the mistake I made in not paying better attention.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
