Sweet StyleBy Brad in So. Cal on 04/23/2009
I love the Vans Authentic shoes. I own the red ones and these offer a classic look with sweet style. Vans knows what they are doing when they make a pair of shoes. I have been wearing them for years and you cant go wrong.
Great shoesBy Tom in SD on 06/05/2009
Picked the Vans Authentic shoes the other day. I love them, I run them without socks all day and they never smell. Once they start to get a little funky, I'll just run them through the washing machine and they'll be good as new. Thank you Vans!
