This is very sharp looking shoe. The suede and black out color scheme look very classy. I haven't skated in them, but rather wear them to job as a waiter. I'm on my feet all day and they still feel great.

I had these in High School back when I was a Skater. Now I guess I just want to relive those days through my shoes! I still love my Vans after all these years.

What a great shoe. I got these for my husband, because they're casual enough for work with jeans, yet they look really clean and together. The picture makes them look more casual. Oh, and the suede doesn't get dirty. He's worn them a month straight everyday, and they look brand-new. We did have to get some cheapo gel arch supports, but totally worth it. These are his go-to shoes without a doubt, and he's never worn shoes like these before. I can see him wanting another pair once these have had it years from now.

Need a pair of moccasins? Here you go. You put these on your feet and you are as quiet as a jungle cat. No support of any kind, but you should realize that going in. Not a complaint just a fact. Comfy. Not for hiking, running...just chillin'.

I've been waiting for this shoe to come back for around two years now. When it finally did zappos sent me an email right away. I immediately ordered them and zappos was nice enough to upgrade to overnight shipping. Very positive experience. I will certainy order from them in the future.

You guys are phenomenal when it comes to deciding if we want to keep our shoes or not. Sometimes you need a bigger or smaller size shoe. Shipping is on tap!

First off, the service was fantastic! The shoes, which are hard to find in the first place, were in stock and delivered to my door 23 hours after placing the order, with free shipping! As to the shoes, they are basically a well made suede, dressier version of a Chuck Taylor. I can wear them at work in comfort and without ridicule. Not sized the same as Converse, though. Size 11 in Chuck Taylor shoes still has room for my toes, but size 11 1/2 Vans Chukka has my toes right up against the front. I normally wear 11 1/2 wide. I should have ordered size 12.

These are the same Chukkas I loved in the 90s, the same style skated by Cardiel and Barbee back in the day and are just as comfortable today. These are a little taller than Half Cabs and protect the ankle a little better from the occasional loose board.

Brands I'd also recommend: Vans Half Cabs and Chukka Lows

These shoes are a bit stiff out of the box. It helps to throw a gel insert into them as well. I've worn vans for over 25 years now and these are the only ones that are a bit uncomfortable until after a few days of wear. As far as style goes, these are what I wear when my old schools are just a bit too casual to wear out. Clean and classic, you can't go wrong with the Vans Chukkas.

Brands I'd also recommend: vans old school, vans slip ons

Bought these for my husband's 39th birthday; yes he still skates! He loved them! He grew up wearing Vans so imagine how many pair he's owned! They look great with both shorts and jeans of course; will without a doubt be buying him another pair. You rock Zappos!

Very prompt delivery! Groovy shoes, excellent company, this is. I had a quality issue with the first pair of Vans I received (some heavy stitching on the top of the right shoe quickly came undone, just after 4 days). So I requested an exchange for a new, identical pair. The guy on the phone was perfectly understanding. Not only did they grant me the exchange, after a few days of wear on the shoes, they also offered me a free upgrade of overnight shipment. I received the new pair the next day, in perfect condition, and sent my worn/faulty pair back shortly after. Zappos kept me informed on both sent and received packages. As my history with this company attests, Zappos is certainly worth crowing about. They deserve to be lauded. Amen.

The shoes are everything I expected, they are sharp shoes. I question their ability to last they way they did in the 90s, but that's the way the globalization cookie crumbles I suppose. Either way, the mid-top chukkas are no longer available at the vans stores. All they have now are the low-tops which I'm sure are fine shoes, but look like your run of the mill skate shoe: bulky.

Brands I'd also recommend: other vans

Great shoes! I had these over 10 years ago and was happy to see them again. They are not ideal for lots of walking and there's not tons of sole support, but they are great shoes. Would be great if they made them in wide.

Cool shoes - I bought these shoes for my son, he actually picked them out himself, he was in Calif. and I am in Az. We did it online/ phone. Zappos is great, I can't say enough about them. They make everything very easy, even when there is a problem. My son loves his shoes and has told all his friends and roommates about Zappos, he like most men hate to shop, so they think Zappos is the greatist thing around.

Sweetest style from the 90's - I searched online for these shoes and only a handful of old style Vans would pop up, so I went to Zappos. Dude, I grew up in these shoes and I must be the happiest guy with a size 16 shoe because I now have those memories of youth every time I wear them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Any old stlye suede puma or new balance shoe would do.
