The Authentic Lo Pro combines two Vans favorites in a look that has been described as everything from saddle shoe to heritage skate shoe. The style is one of the most versatile yet. This pair also adds a little 1980's flavor with bright neon uppers.
These were the first Vans I bought in a long time. I wore them for a few months and fell in love with the highlights of the hot pink contrasting against the black. I was angry when they started "talking back!" The canvas part detached from the sole! It really ticked me off, for that amount of money it should have came shoe clue. So keep your receipts!
When they say neon, they mean neon. The picture doesn't do the color justice. But that's what I really wanted so it didn't bother me. What did bother me is how unusually stiff these shoes were. The canvas material felt different from my other lo pros which seemed weird to me. Other than that I plan to wear them a lot, and I've never had any problems with my lo pros.
Feels true to size
Feels true to width
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
