These are the classic vans slip shoes. I got my first pair in 1984 when I was 5! They're great shoes for walking, skateboarding, and going out! All around vans shoes are a great all around shoe! And I just want to say how much Zappos rocks!! I have been getting all my shoes from them for the fast 4 years! I have never been let down a single time!

These are nice looking shoes, but they lasted less than one month! My son wore them a few times a week for a month and they are already torn from the sole. That was very disappointing, no shoes should last less than a month!

Love them. Super cute. True to size. Very comfortable. The only downside is sometimes they give off a weird smell. I noticed it when sitting at my desk at work. I think it's from the leather top portion of the shoe. I think it will go away with time. It's not that bad and not a deal breaker. Might buy another pair in a different color.

Bought these for my husband and he loves them. A great causal shoe for all sorts of occasions. Vans are also a great value.

Love these shoes -- slightly disappointed by the quality though. Wore them three times and the leather ripped. Got a replacement pair and so far they have held up...hopefully it was just a defective pair that I received originally. Zappos customer service is amazing.

Love the style. They are Vans so they are comfortable slip-ons but not meant for a soft cushy feel. I find Reef has the one up on vans in this aspect as they have a way softer sole. I wear a 12 but needed to exchange the 12 for an 11.5 and again for an 11 as they would slip off had I not. My other Vans with laces are all 12. Zappos customer service is probably the best I've experienced with exchanges.

Really cute. If you don't plan to wear socks, I recommend coming down a full size. They are a great look; will probably get another pair.

My go-to summer shoes! One can never have too many pairs of this classic. I wear the boy's 3.5/women's 5.0, and they fit perfectly.

I love classic Vans. They are so comfortable and you cannot beat the style! I have many pairs and designs. I even got the strawberries and they look so good on! Zappos has more of a selection then the Vans store!

I love Vans slip-ons. When a pair wears out I buy another. Retiring my black leather ones for these as they look spring/summery. I don't really like the floral print inside but you can barely see it. Super comfy and look great with jeans.

Great shoes. The leather makes the shoe need to be broken in as opposed to other Vans but it looks stylish. I got them in black as well.

My first pair of Vans. Very comfortable shoe. Elastic is a little tight when you first try on but relaxes over time. All in all I'm happy with my purchase.

This particular navy and stripe design has some sort of bleach mark pattern on it. Look closely in the picture. I wasn't aware of it at first but I seem to like the slightly destroyed sense of it. They are cute and fit true to size. I have small feet, high arch and tailors bunion on the outside of my feet. So I have a hard time finding a shoe that fits comfortably. So far on first try on they fit perfect. The arch support may need some help!

This is a nice, slightly better quality, slip on Van sneaker. If you like the basic version of this shoe, and would like to take the style up a notch, check this one out!

This shoe is not a slip on. It's a tug on. And I should've been warned away when the sizing is "women's/men's." What that translates to is a masculine cut that makes it hard to put on. Fail.

I ordered a women's 6.5 (my true size) and had to work really hard to get my feet into these shoes. Definitely a half size too small! Also, the sole felt really heavy and not something I would want to wear everyday. I live in Tom's and those are so light and comfy I feel like I'm walking on air. Given the overwhelmingly positive reviews, I was disappointed.

Bought these for my teenage daughter in her usual size 8, they are very comfortable can be worn with anklet socks or no socks great for summer. They do run slightly big, I'm gonna say almost a half size but not enough to bother her or for her feet to fall out of. Maybe a 7.5 would've been better it's hard to tell without trying both on.

I love the shoes, but they do not provide the amount of support for the pronation of my feet even with custom orthotics. The shoes have good weight underneath but no side support. I would love to wear them for all of their casual flair! But sadly they are not for me.

I commute on foot 2.5 miles a day and these are my go-tos (work better for me than Supergas AND Converse). This fabric style is slightly heavier than the normal canvas, but I love them!

Undecided on this shoe as of now. The elastic is bothering me on the top of the shoe. I keep looking for a piece of tag or something but there is nothing there. The shoe itself is incredibly cute. Sole is stiff and no arch support, but not uncomfortable. I want to love these because they are cute. I am hoping the elastic will loosen up. I'm going to have to go with 3 stars because of the comfort factor.

Having been a Keds fan for years, I have recently discovered Vans. Keds had always been my go-to but there was always an irritating seam that dug into the top of my arch. Have two pairs of Vans now and I'm sold on them. These ones I wore right out of the box with no socks and they are as comfy as slippers - no friction points or seams that dig in - just right like Cinderella. Plus they're cute! Note: I have always been a pretty solid size 10 but I had to exchange these for a 9.5 which fit perfect. Everyone's foot is different though but for me the 10 was noticeably longer. Please get these in espresso because that's my favorite color! Lastly: I love Zappos. Love the next day shipping on most orders, free returns, and the website. Don't change a thing!

Great looking shoe in the gold/bronze color. Love the style and casual trendiness. Women's 9 was the right length, but kind of narrow. Tight across the in-step so getting it on & off was hard & fit just not comfortable. Returning due to fit for me, might be ok for others. Perhaps 9.5 would fit better or other material might be softer, but really drawn to the look of these.
