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.

I absolutely love my new Vans....they are so cute and very comfortable (after breaking then in as with many shoes need to be!) I got the Gray/Frost color of these awesome sneakers and absolutely love them! They are super girly without screaming it. They are perfect because they are casual enough to wear with everyday outfits, yet cute and sleek enough to dress up and wear with a cute skirt or sweet sundress etc. I love them and plan on purchasing a black pair! I can wear them literally with anything and ita such a clean,nice look! And there Vans, I thought they were just skateboarding shoes but they are everyone everyday amazing shoes at a unbeatable price! I can't tell you how comfy they are, they are below the ankle so they offer as much support as a show designed for below the ankle can, and they have a great inside that fits snuggly Toby our foot, and a awesome soul that helps absorbs shock especially if walking or wearing them on hard surfaces all day I have yet to have any issues with them or my body while wearing! Love love love them cannot wait to order an all black pair next!

I'd also recommend: Chuck Taylor's, Nike,
