I ordered another style of shoe and it was out of stock and it is still not in stock so I settled for this shoe. Sometimes things happen for a reason. I love this shoe. I wear an orthotic insole in all my shoes and this shoe easily accommodates the orthotic and the shoe is stylish. It looks great with jeans and it has a solid feel so I can use it for short hikes or long walks. Because I spend a lot of time outdoors and in casual wear, this shoe is a good choice.

Bought these for my daughter and my son for Christmas. Both pairs have already started to wear out quite a bit. The rubber has separated from the canvas on both pairs right at the ball of their foot.

Love. What's not to love? Comfortable classics in cool colors and prints. I got black floral ones and they draw nothing but compliments. Better made/sturdier than the somewhat flimsy Rocket Dogs I bought at the same time. Fit just right.

Love these shoes. Worn authentic vans for a few years now, they always last me about a year of constant wear. Get a few compliments on the color. Once these shoes break in, which doesn't take long, they're magical. Really classic look.

I'd also recommend: Nike, Onitsuka Tigers

I got these for my 12 year old and although he initially thought they were too unisex looking, he is now convinced they are super cool! We like our Vans!

Very cute shoe and true to size. Not very much padding, wouldn't want to stand all day in them. shoelaces are incredibly long so I have to double tie them so they won't touch the ground. But even after the couple drawbacks, I really do like them overall...a nice decent shoe.
