Holy crap! stop the video reviews this review sounds like every other sneaker review you have a traditional lace up system, even mid-sole, this and that for comfort and support. Zappos, look at the shoe, tell us what is different than what I can see from pictures and descriptions. Please stop wasting my time.

Wish I could vote all 5 stars but my son found this style to be very uncomfortable and somewhat narrow. We were surprised since they resembled his old Vans, but perhaps he bought a different style before. Anyway, we took another reviewer's advice and exchanged these for Vans Chukka Low -- a much more comfortable shoe! Overall, great looks but not comfortable if you like a little more padding.

This is a great pair of classic vans. They look good enough to wear for dressier occasions or for school. I would buy these again!

These shoes were comfortable from the first minute. I wear them a lot, probably to more events than I should.

These are so cute - I really like the brown faux-leather type accents. True to size, maybe go up a half size if you wear thicker socks.

Subject: Best pair of shoes I ve ever worn! Preface I purchased a pair of black Vans Era shoes at the end of May, and I could not be happier. They had everything that I was looking for in a casual shoe. I highly recommend them for anyone who is looking for a comfortable and durable shoe! Who wears these shoes? Vans is known for being a skateboard brand that offers durable shoes that can handle the wear and tear of riding a skateboard. They are very stylish, and I have noticed a lot of people wearing them for casual use. I purchased them to wear to work, because black shoes would match my clothes and colorful collection of socks. I worked at a clothing store, and my job was to talk to the customers and work the cash register. I was always on my feet, and these shoes provided me with constant comfort. I continue to wear them on a weekly basis, whether I m going to class or out with my friends, because they re comfortable and easy to slide on. Characteristics They are incredibly durable and show minimum signs of being consistently worn for four months. They are light, but they are not the type of shoes to run in. Since Vans is a skateboarding company, the majority of their shoes don t have any arch support. I don t recommend them for athletic use, but other companies, such as Nike and Adidas, make arched shoes that are better for such events. Reliability I have purchased Vans before and I have never been disappointed! There are a lot of other shoe brands out there that I could ve gone with, but Vans was able to give me the best bang for my buck. Price I wasn t looking to break the bank on a nice pair of shoes, and the $45 that I spent on them was ideal. The free one day shipping offered by Zappos was icing on the cake. Overall, I am very satisfied with the shoes, and I m giving them a five out of five stars.

These have the thinnest insole that I have ever seen. I can feel the cracks on the ground when I walk in these shoes. I have not had this experience with any other Vans that I have worn previously. Maybe the perforated leather costs more, so they offset that cost by using a cheap insole?
