Hey guys, I got a pair of vans authentics this spring that have been getting a lot of wear this spring and summer, and they are already beat to shit. How long does a pair last you guys typically?

those are all i skate in and they last 2 weeks, maybe 3 if i get a lot of skating in. as long as i keep the ones i dont skate in good condition, they last much longer, i only get some wear in the soles, never broke the canvas

I got a pair a year and a half ago now and they're starting to look like shit. They have holes near the toes ans the canvas rips itself apart on the sides. I wear them a lot yeah but never went skating with them.

thank you for the replies everyone. I've been wearing mine practically every day since april or so, hopefully they'll last through next spring/summer.

I always buy all black Authentics and I live in Cali so the sun does some major damage on my shoes, I can wear em for about a year or two but after 4-6 months they begin to fade and the rubber on the side begins to tear.

They actually last a pretty good time for me. And that says a lot because as someone part of my area's dance community I dance in vans and they've held up to all the glides, heel-toes, side glides, and toe spins I've thrown at them (but they are kinda shitty for that type of stuff.)
But when vans get fucked up, they get fucked up. Hella easy to tear the canvas, soles are pretty shitty and wear down easily, lace holes tear off, color fades etc. Its just that vans are really low quality. If i had more money I'd dance in adidas but i dont so i have to use vanstongueface
