Default Vans shoes

Ive had 3pairs of van shoes in my life. The first pair was a slip on style/no lace which I wore everywhere for any activity they lasted forever and the only reason I stopped wearing them was cos my family couldn't stand the smell of them.
From 15y.o.a to 21y.o.a I had a brief hiatus from vans I don't know why I think they went out of fashion/ anyway I bought a pair of Vans Knost e-street in 2011 and they were really cool shoes but they ended up falling apart from playing basketball and wearing everyday which Is understandable hence why we have basketball shoes designed for court use.

So 3days ago I buy a new pair of vans (authentics) and they are already falling apart.. The soles which line the fabric around my foot is starting to peel it's really frustrating cos I love vans what's the fkin deal with the life expectancy andy they arnt cheap either...are there warranty on these shoes. I've worked out I've worn them for 36hours and they are already falling apart.. Obscene. Do we have any vans heads who have experience short life with their shoes is this a trend... After all vans shoes are skate shoes originally.

Converse is the way to go.

If you think vans are cool don't buy them your wasting your money on poor made pieces of shiit. You can even see the glue they use when you buy the shoe cos they fall apart within hours srs/ quality shoes are ususlly hand stitched i thought.. and I havnt been using these authentics for SB purposes straight up chilling and nothing else and I don't walk like an Asian dragging my feet etc.

The fact that you have harvard in your username is very ironic.
