A great, lightweight, durable all-purpose shoe! They grip to my bike pedals very well, breathe nicely and are comfortable to wear without socks. Took a few weeks to break in but now they're perfect. They also clean up easily.

I'm very disappointed in this shoe. The upper became separated from the sole at the mid-foot after the first week of wear, and we've found the overall support lacking in the sole. When we attempted to replace the insole with an over-the-counter arch support, we discovered a complete lack of support under the 1/8 inch foam insert. While it may be fine for light wear, it does not adequately perform for my active teen's lifestyle. Better to invest money in a better performing shoe that will last a few more months.

Good shoe but, like others, I got blisters pretty bad for the first few days. I used bandages to cover the area while wearing them to avoid this, and after a few days everything was fine. The shoe is actually pretty comfortable otherwise.

Shoes came exactly as described and are very stylish. These are my first pair of Vans but I'm excited to wear them. They look very good with multiple outfits, including just t-shirt and jeans or can be paired with sweaters in the colder months. I ordered the pewter colored shoes as well! Great shoes!

Hi I ordered my Vans and received them 4 days later. Which is very good because I live in Australia. They are very comfortable. This is my 4th pair of Vans. And Zappos is the cheapest place I could find to buy Vans- about 60% cheaper than the stores

I love this shoe. Glad to see Vans making a comeback. Very comfortable; can keep the shoe on all day with no worries. In the summer I wouldn't wear thick socks with this, as the shoe is pretty well insulated and thick socks would cause my feet to overheat. Got overnight shipping from Zappos and the shoes arrived as scheduled.

I ordered these shoes because I needed a simple pair of white sneakers similar to shoes I already wear. I am a big fan of low top Converse all stars and these had that same vibe. I love them and I also get a lot of compliments on them.

Everything, and I mean everything about these shoes is great...except, there's no arch support. But that is quite literally the only thing I have against them. Still love 'em to death.

I had never had these Vans but I had always wanted to. I finally bought them and could not wait to wear them. Unfortunately the first time I wore them they peeled the back of my foot. I am not sure if it was the socks or what but I stopped wearing them for a couple of days and when I wore them again they felt great! They did not hurt me again. These shoes are comfortable, stylish, and easy to clean!

I've owned the Vans Era Core Classics in True White for a little over a year now. These were my first pair of Vans shoes. As an avid fan of white skateboarding shoes (though not a skateboarder as much anymore myself), I knew I needed to try these out. What I love is that no matter how dirty they might get, you can throw them in the Washer with a little bit of bleach and they'll come out brand spankin' new. However, after several washes and continuous use I'll admit the shoes definitely got worn down. Holes started appearing and it seemed the sole was removing itself from the shoe around the rim. Regardless, the shoes were cheap and versatile, and I never worried about getting them dirty because I knew they could look brand new the next day.

I've worn Vans for 5 years straight, and for me they last about 6-7 months. The cost is quite reasonable. I love this style because its the classic Vans style. I highly recommend these to the average person that walks everyday, and lives a fairly active lifestyle.

These shoes are great. I have been religiously wearing the same pair for over a year and a half now, and they are still supportive and show little wear. The sizing is spot on, and fit well if you have a narrower foot. They are easy to clean as well, and they feel great sans socks in the summer.

These shoes are comfortable throw backs! They fit great and I got tons of compliments. I bought about three different colors after I got these. But they have another classic pair without the cushion ribbing and they look better on your feet. But both pair feel good and look good with a polo top and shorts.

If you're looking at these, you obviously have good, practical, old-school taste. I wear a 13 and ordered a 13. When I got them, they were a little on the smallish side. But, like all good things, it's worth the wait. A week or so into my new pair of kicks, they loosened up and they fit like a glove.

I ordered these shoes for my husband. My son also wears this type of shoe from time to tome. They both love them. For my husband as soon as one pair is worn out he gets another. Zappos.com is my favorite website. Great service with so much selection. I love Zappos!

Nice - The right shoe heel kinda dives into my Achilles. :( I hope I can wear it in. But otherwise... hella nice shoe. They upgraded my free shipping to one day shipping... which was TOTALLY unexpected and AWESOME. Zappos owns.
