I say Authentics.
They have no padding, where as eras do, however this makes for a bulkier fitting shoe. The eras are suuuper low key, and comfortable once you wear them in a bit.

are the authentics comfortable from the jump?

yeah, and I'm not saying eras aren't. I just found that being all canvas ,the authentics needed to soften up a little bit, eras are pretty cushioned so they are nice right from the get go. I like how authentics fit over all though.

yah i have numerous pairs of both and they both are super comfy i agree that the eras take longer to break in but i find they wear better in the long run as appose to the authentics

eras fit more like slip ons and authentics are more like low all stars, sorry for the double post.

its alright... and i think ima go with the era's because of the fact that i can have more fun with them considering the fact that they have more designs unlike the authentics...

I personally like the eras, it's all about personal preference.

once again, eras have padding...
authentics do not.

I really agree authentic is still best...and comfortable too....

i made up my mind because someone said that they were like the slip on's but with laces... i think that's what was said... or no... it was that they fit like the slip ons...
