Fuck, we need someone to confirm if they have a faded look or not. I ain't buying if they are.

Exactly what I was thinking. Doesn't look worth copping now imo.

I'm pretty sure it's just the vans photo that makes them look like trash.

I guarantee the brown laces on the green's aren't that light. I have vans with those laces and they're much darker. Colors should be true to what we've seen so far.

I'm going on the side that it's faded simply because you can tell. You can see a white fade go around the stitching in every photo. SMH, I actually was waiting for these shoes. Why would they fuck them up?!

Yeah I decided not to be the test dummy, passing on these until someone proves they aren't faded

think i might just buy a pair of white authentics instead...
edit: they also dont have the waffle sole which is kind of disappointing, they have a boat shoe sole

be careful what you pretend to be

Actually, the van doren flowers authentic slim are not for girls. All vans are unisex and the slim version of the authentics are made for people with smaller/narrow feet. In general women have smaller feet then men so the slim authentics are geared towards people with smaller/narrow feet.

but men with narrow feet still have regular sizes. i have narrow feet but im an 11. the max size for any slim authentic is a 10 or 10.5, same with their womens shoes. dem girls shoes, nice trysmokeyface

I was just making a statement. Theres no argument here. When click the size tab, it says "Men = Women" .... they wouldn't have that if they were women's shoes. Its Unisex
