Overall Rating for Vans Authentic
Vans are amazing

These, along with all other pairs of vans, are good looking, but arent the most comfortable shoes around. The best part about them is that they look just as good beat up as they do brand new. I love that they are super affordable, super cool, and though they arent very comfortable, they do feel just right on my feet. Love the shoes and the service

"Get it. This sneaker has classic styling that will never go out of fashion. Van's Authentic is best for hanging out etc., not so much for skating. If you skate them you will have holes in them within' two sessions. This doesn't mean that it's not a great shoe for skating; it has great grip and board feel, and as far as ankle support...a wise man once said that the higher (more ankle support) a sneaker has, the more likely your ankle is to roll because it's 'tricked' into thinking that there is more support therefore it doesn't hold up the same that it (your ankle) would with a lower profile shoe. Keep in mind that all Vans look best when the outer sole is rubbed down and broken in. For what it's worth, this is a very hip shoe for men and women that you're sure to turn heads with."
